Men and Cartoons is a place where superheroes take tenured positions at
colleges, where innermost secrets are blurted in baroque dinner-party
games, where a magical spray-product reveals that which two tormented
lovers have concealed from one another, where sheep bred for suicide defy
the imperatives of their creators, and where the smallest moments of life,
from fitting a pair of glasses to choosing a record to play during a tryst,
become unexpectedly revelatory, uncanny and hilarious. In these nine tales
Lethem brings his quarry into the light: men, not boys, caught in the act
of never completely growing up.
