Average Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5.
Hot Pink
Baker & Taylor
This provocative story, told with a unique blend of love, violence and slapstick humor, brings to life the colliding worlds of a colorful cast of characters including overweight romantics, legless prodigies, textbook lovers, dirty old men, angry mimes and nervous comedians.

Perseus Publishing
Adam Levin’s debut novel The Instructions was one of the most buzzed-about books of 2010, a sprawling universe of “death-defying sentences, manic wit, exciting provocations and simple human warmth” (Rolling Stone).

Now, in the stories of Hot Pink, Levin delivers ten smaller worlds, shaken snow-globes of overweight romantics, legless prodigies, quixotic dollmakers, Chicagoland thugs, dirty old men, protective fathers, balloon-laden dumptrucks, and walls that ooze gels. Told with lust and affection, karate and tenderness, slapstickery, ferocity, and heart, Hot Pink is the work of a major talent in his sharpest form.

Have to say that this collection of short stories didn't do anything for me. They are all a bit off the wall and more violent than I normally am comfortable with. The writing was okay, but nothing special, so that didn't make up for the other issues I had with it.
The collection includes ten short stories, and everyone seems disturbed or has lots of issues. They don't seem to communicate well with the people around them, and they all seem to have some kind of issue in how they react to certain kinds of behaviours from others.
Definitely not my thing.
