“Pat Rushin is out of his fucking mind. I like that in a writer.”
–Terry Gilliam, Director of Brazil
Celebrate the new release from award-winning writer Pat Rushin
with a special bundle of his complete works to date.
Quantum Physics & My Dog Bob: Rushin’s brand new story collection fuses the familiar and the uncanny.A father, sick of speaking, takes a lifelong vow of silence. A literature PhD candidate falls prey to her psycho poet roommate. A dog pining for steak spontaneously combusts. Each darkly funny story is like a parallel universe where everyday characters find themselves in a reality slightly askew from the one we know.
The Call: Released by Burrow in 2015, this is the book on which Terry Gilliam’s film The Zero Theorem is based (Rushin happened to write the screenplay as well). Darkly comic and with language that leaps off the page, this novel is like Waiting for Godot with high-speed internet access.
Puzzling Through the News: After finishing Rushin’s latest story collection, his debut book will satisfy your hunger for more. Now back in “print” with this 25th anniversary ebook edition from Burrow.
