Publisher Description

Twenty years ago, Barney the Dinosaur told the nation's children they were special. We're still paying the price.

From "one of the funniest writers in America" comes a collection of stories culled from the front lines of the millennial culture wars (Jimmy So, Daily Beast). Rife with failing rock bands, student loans, and participation trophies, Spoiled Brats is about a generation of narcissists -- and the well-meaning boomers who made them that way.

A hardworking immigrant is preserved for a century in pickle brine. A helicopter mom strives to educate her demon son. And a family of hamsters struggles to survive in a private-school homeroom. Surreal, shrewd, and surprisingly warm, these stories are as resonant as they are hilarious.

Endearing, Absurd, Hilarious!!!

These stories are compelling while also being completely absurd and hilarious. I want each of these shorts to be a full novel. The pickle guy and his turn of events is a solid highlight. I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout each story. This is a hit and worth your time.
