If the incredibly talented B.J. Novak’s collection of short stories could be described in just one word, it would be: creative. Ranging from flash fiction to longer pieces, each showcases a mind that truly thinks outside the box. The compilation serves as a perfect snapshot of our times: here, Encyclopedia Brown has been replaced by Wikipedia Brown. The stories are effortlessly hip, yet wise and full of heart -- it’s a difficult feat to pull off. Even if everyone from Frank Sinatra to Confucius gets air time, you’ll leave hungry wishing Novak could have scribbled just one more thing.
