When your world frays around the edges and carefully stitched plans begin to come undone, how do you manage to hold it all together? The eleven stories in "So Long Polyester" examine both the damage and hope born of loss.. From the loss of innocence to "losing your shirt", this elegant and at times darkly comic and disturbing collection is populated by characters struggling to keep thier sanity and status, relationships and lives from unravelling.
In the deliciously sinister "Love, Like Stew" a woman's ex pushes too far and she finds herself caught in a battle for one-upmanship, while in "Rock. Paper. Scissors." a prominent doctor's indecisive wife threatens an affair forcing his hand, and a mother recalls her childhood loss and the fight to free herself and family from their fanatical father in "The Cure".
In the title story, "So Long Polyester" an under-achieving, dishevelled man interviews for his dream job which could lead to the greatest loss of all.
