"Matt Geiger's work is brilliant, varied and heartbreaking as the best works of Dostoyevsky, Hemingway, and Grizzard. Okay, mostly Grizzard. Except without the ex-wives. But it's funny stuff, really, and it's filled with genuine heart." – Alex Bledsoe, Author of The Hum and the Shiver
"Matt Geiger is a writer of deft humor and exceptional insight. By turns poignant and hilarious, his witty, empathetic observations of fatherhood, family, and community evoke laughter and touch the heart in equal measure." – New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer Chiaverini
His little sister joins the circus. His parents buy a nerdy horse. He’s surrounded by hundreds of men dressed up as Ernest Hemingway. He tries to order a monkey through the mail. And now his baby is eating dog food.
Matt Geiger’s award-winning stories reveal the sublime in the mundane and the comical in the banal. There is existential dread. There is festivity amid detritus. There are moments of genuine introspection on what it means to be human. And it’s all laugh-out-loud funny when told by a humorist who is determined to live an examined life, even if he’s not always entirely sure what he’s looking at.
