About this item
What does it mean to be a nobody? How does it feel to be a somebody? And why is it so hard to be ourselves? These are the questions at the heart of Nobodies, a darkly comedic collection in which a neurotic teenager experiences his first rejection; a stalker emails her favourite movie star; a young man wages war against God; and an aspiring philosopher--with the help of his imaginary mentor, Jonathan Swift--tries to save the world from itself. In sixteen genre-bending stories, Nobodies explores the paradoxes of status anxiety, the pitfalls of fame, and the dialectics of identity in the twenty-first century.
