Ladies and Gentlemen

Adam Ross, author of last year's Mr. Peanut, apparently doesn't like to sleep and has come out - as fast as a speedy snake - with a new book. But that's ok, because we like Ross' writing.

Ladies and Gentlemen is a collection of short stories: dark, grim short stories on human relationships. The New York Times Sunday Book Review calls the book "clever in all the right ways, even while paying homage to the most traditional of forms."

If you want to get an idea of what your in for, Five Chapters has published one of the stories, "The Suicide Room," on their website. Don't let the title scare you, the story is actually quite funny and playful. (This is absolutely not true, but come on! Give it a chance!)
