The masterfully crafted stories that comprise "Remote Feed" mark the auspicious debut of a daring and remarkably perceptive writer. From war-torn Bosnia to a college sorority house to kill-or-be-killed Hollywood, David Gilbert uses bold prose and dark wit to 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's stories have appeared in "The New Yorker, Harper's, GQ, Bomb, " the "Mississippi Review, " and "New Stories from the South, Best of 1996." He lives in New York City.
