Venus Drive

Author: Sam Lipsyte



An intense, mordantly funny collection of short fiction from the author of Home Land and The Ask.

A man with an old soul finds himself at a Times Square peep show, looking for more than just a little action. A young man goes into some serious regression after finding his deceased mother’s stash of morphine. A group of summer-camp sadists return to the scene of the crime. Sam Lipsyte’s brutally funny narratives tread morally ambiguous terrain, where desperate characters stumble over hope, or sometimes merely stumble. Written with ferocious wit and surprising empathy, Venus Drive is a potent collection of stories from a wickedly gifted writer (Robert Stone).

The Picador paperback edition includes an excerpt from The Ask.
