An essential for the postmodern library, this collection is like nothing else you've read--a trio of short novels that tackles stardom, science fiction, movies, love affairs, twins, French people, writing colonies, parenting, missionaries, murder, and holograms. Martian Dawn was hailed by avant-garde writer Harry Mathews as "an ultra-cool comedy of the future." Are We Done Here? zips the reader from the New York demimonde to the rain forest and back again. And On My Way to See You is a French murder mystery in which the carpet keeps getting pulled--and you keep liking it. As cultural critic Wayne Koestenbaum says, author Michael Friedman "takes fiction seriously by not taking it seriously." Brilliant and hugely entertaining, Martian Dawn and Other Novels is destined for a cult following.
