‘Here’ is 80W80 on Manhattan’s Upper Westside where Azazel Braunstein discovers a room that her landlord, Dewitt Kensington doesn’t even know exists. ‘Here’ is World of Beauty in Flushing Queens, where Parker Ross solves a moral dilemma while having his chest hair dyed. ‘Here’ is the Gregory Palinuck Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where Norm Schumer, a warehouse security guard, becomes a superstar in the New York art world.
Loaded with dark wit and emotion, the stories in Heather Holland Wheaton’s You Are Here tangle, skate and twist with one another, then ultimately merge into a larger Seinfeld-ian tableau. Her succinct, often puckish writing is a cab ride without red lights that will truly bring you ‘here.’
