Going for a Beer: Selected Short Fictions, by Robert Coover.
A collection of his best short fictions - Robert Coover has been playing by his own rules for more than half a century. Coover finds inspiration in everything from painting, cinema, theatre, and dance to slapstick, magic acts, puzzles, and riddles.
Through their celebration of the improbable and unexpected, and their distinctive but complementary grammars of text and film, Coover’s selected short fictions entertain by engaging with the tribal myths that surround us—religious, patriotic, literary, erotic, popular.
"The thirty stories in Going for a Beer confirm Coover’s reputation as "one of America’s greatest literary geniuses" (Alan Moore).
