Super-short fiction for busy New Yorkers (and other people) who don't have time to read, Eight Million Stories in a New York Minute is
44 keen-as-lightning little gems about the people that live 'in the center of the universe.'
The stories can be read independently while waiting on line at the deli, for the elevator to get to the lobby and for the train to be moving shortly—or the collection can be read as a whole with the tales turning into connected layers of fine New York dirt. Either way, they're addictive.
Wheaton’s stiletto sharp writing playfully taps into the contemporary New York zeitgeist with wit and whimsy, but makes no apologies for poking fun at the city’s squishy underbelly of obsessions, neurosis, and unattainable desires.
