This debut choice of stories—featuring a talk-show host and her speaking hand, a women’s job staff that writes to prisoners, and a poncho-making nudist—is as particular because it is compelling. Set of their personal melodramatic worlds, the tales take suggestion from outdated Hollywood, Gothic novels, art-world gossip, and perhaps an entire life motion picture or . Balzer's observations are as sharp as Flaubert’s, and his characters are drawn with the complexity of George Saunders (and the wit of George Sanders). superbly illustrated throughout, Contrivances proves that tragedy is comedy should you play with it lengthy enough.
