In this dazzling debut about life after loss, Luke B. Goebel's heart-hurt, ultra-adrenalized alter ego leads us on a raucous RV romp across what's left of postmodern America and beyond. Whether it's gobbling magic cacti at a native ceremony in Northern California, burning bad manuscripts in a backyard bonfire in East Texas, or travelling at top speed to an infamous editor's office in Manhattan (with a burnt-out barista and an illegal bald eagle as companions), scene by scene, story by story, Goebel plunges us into a madly original fictional realm characterized by heartbroken psychedelic cowboys on the brink—onely men who wrestle wild dogs on cheap beaches and kick horses in the face to get ahead.

Fourteen Stories, None of Them Are Yours is a rare book: Goebel's ingenuity, humanity, and humor streak through every page.
