Venus Drive by Sam Lipsyte

Sam Lipsyte's debut collection of short stories is both funny and painful--a pairing I might say sums up the majority of his work--peopled by addicts, telemarketers, peep show clientele, and the like. Says Time Out New York, "You’ve probably never heard syntax so artfully skewed, or laughed so hard at someone else’s dread." (This is technically in reference to a live reading, hence the "heard" but it still rings true, I think.)
