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.
