Featuring a grizzled and possibly deranged male doula, a doomsday hustler who must face the multi-universal truth of "the real-ass jumbo," and a tawdry glimpse of a high school shot-putting circuit in northern New Jersey, circa 1986, Lipsyte's short stories combine the tragicomic brilliance of his beloved novels with the compressed vitality of "Venus Drive." "The Fun Parts" is Lipsyte at his very best--a far-ranging exploration of new voices and vistas from "the most consistently funny fiction writer working today" ("Time").
