Publisher Description:
Fiction. Joshua Cohen has performed in-depth investigations into mirrors and navels to return with THE QUORUM, his first collection of short fiction. A set of ten stories, a set of dreams, and a long monologue, these are all first-person rants given over by the somehow alienated individuals seeking only a sympathetic hearing, all dealing with identity and religion as well as occupied with technical ideas of reliable narration and the structure of "the mind's ear." From a review of a book about the Holocaust that's six-million blank pages to a suicide note from a young university student, from a letter home detailing an economy based on hair to a eulogy for a poem from a story narrated by three-hundred concubines to the title story about a group of people who interchange appearances, habits, proclivities and talents, THE QUORUM is a tightly-written, sensitive, and inevitably absurd take on the individual's lifelong quest to get someone, anyone, to listen.
