A college-age hustler working New York recounts a grisly affair. Two men observe the streets of a seedy neighborhood in Bucharest. A bored grocery store bagger finds a fleeting thrill as a bystander to bloodshed...

Fourteen stories and a short novel make up Tiny Fish that Only Want to Kiss by Gary Indiana. With peculiar compassion, the fictions in this book masterfully chronicle abject subcultures of contemporary times.
