“…a seductive, disturbing vision of life…” — Spencer Drew, decomP magazine

By turns defiant, paranoid, brooding, absurd and knock-down funny, Thor Garcia’s debut collection of short stories TUND is a startling creation. Peopled by a galaxy of fringe operators and hoodlums, tattered no-hopers and doom-drenched true believers, sadistic children and tormented hooch hounds — and not least, a girl called Spoogeface — TUND is a swirling landscape of meltdowns, terrifying visions and punch-drunk epiphanies. Irreverent and iconoclastic, it probes the desolation and cruelties, desperation and contradictions, the hazards and hoopla, of life in an unstable and emotionally crippled age. Brimming with riotous panache, anarchic soul and sinewy, exultant writing, TUND is sure to stimulate and dazzle.
