Description

Whether they're sitting at home getting stoned or getting cloned and sent to the other side of the galaxy, Jeremy Sheldon's characters are ultimately preoccupied with the important things in life: sex and food, love and football, masturbation and computer games. Sheldon creates a world where these regular recreational activities are pushed to extremes: a gang of bored friends competes to eat as much as they can in a supermarket sweep with a difference...a finalist at the World Tekken Championship falls in love with the only woman who can beat his Jin Kazama with her Ling Xiaoyu...a bitter divorcee finds himself obsessed with the state of Fred Flintstone's marriage to Wilma...Sheldon's stories read deceptively easily, like comic books, like watching TV, and are often gut-wrenchingly funny. They are also an acute look at what it is to be young, male and English. His characters are diffident, blocked, emotionally muted, caught between the momentum of their desires and the frustrating clutches of their anxieties.
