Monica Never Shuts Up (Paperback)
A dozen stories featuring a mouthful of lottery tickets, a giant cow, two yachts, a six-pack of Fresca, and Monica, who never shuts up. When Liz and Reg find their dream house, they don't expect to find Lois and her magical Fresca. Same as Deirdre doesn't expect to find what she finds in the trash bin. Debra can't help but send pieces of herself to her ex-husband same as Jim can't help thinking about the pieces of men that are taken without permission. Award-winning author A.S. King shares her short fiction including the Best New American Voices-nominated title track, "Monica Never Shuts Up" and keeps us thinking, exploring, and laughing all at the same time.
