David Gilbert's dark and daring collection of stories was admitted by critics and readers alike when first published in 1998. Now available in a new paperback edition, Gilbert's stories stretch from war-torn Bosnia to a college sorority house to kill-or-be-killed Hollywood. Gilbert's bold prose and perceptive wit paint a devastating picture of normal life on the brink of desperation and paranoia. His insights into the minor tragedies, disappointments, and desires that shape us reflect a deep understanding of human nature and a genuine compassion for his characters. Filled with startling twists, piercing irony, and layers of meaning, the world Gilbert creates in Remote Feed is a complex one-often hilarious, sometimes frightening, but always fascinating. David Gilbert is the author of the novel The Normals. His stories have appeared in the New Yorker, Harper's, GQ, and Bomb. He lives in New York City with his wife and two children. A New York Times Notable Book "Gilbert's dead-on mimicry of conversational rhythms makes even the most ludicrous exchanges sound plausible, and he applies physical details sparingly and potently...wickedly funny."-New York Times Book Review "Hilarious and unnerving."-Vanity Fair "These stories are funny and thoroughly entertaining."-Washington Post "One is mesmerized by Gilbert's daring and absolute persuasiveness."-Time Out "Gilbert is wonderful. I hope readers flock to these vivid tales."-Jay Parini "Gilbert's strange takes and wonderful dark humor intrude upon the familiar until his own singular vision prevails-he doesn't let anyone get away with anything."-Amy Hempel
