Shoplifting From American Apparel by Tao Lin. Recommended by Sean Cranbury

Shoplifting From American Apparel by Tao Lin.

Published September 2009 by Melville House

ISBN: 978-1-93363378-7

The Recommend:

The novella as doodle of loneliness.

Funny, simple scenes of profound beauty.  The ache of fresh sneakers and magazines.

Pregnant with absence.  Weird digressions via Gmail chat and email with friendship attachments.

Getting arrested for stealing a new shirt to wear to your reading that night, apologizing, going for an iced coffee.

This book is for poets and adventurous readers looking for strange talent.
