THE BARISTA AND I - Stories by Andrew Szymanski

Andrew Szymanski's debut fiction collection takes on subjects such as idealized love in an illogical world, ruminations on the realities of failed relationships, and the inability to make meaningful connections.

In these stories, a man recruits a sexual companion to chase his lost lover across the globe; a recent graduate remembers with bitter nostalgia his formative years; a man and woman contend with their own neuroses and anxieties in trying to pick each other up.

Szymanski's distinct voice permeates these stories of characters trying vainly to escape the ennui of their lives through the distractions of dreams and vices. Andrew Szymanski was born in Ottawa, Ontario, and he lives and works in Montreal, Quebec. He completed his B.A. in English Literature at the University of Waterloo and his M.A. in Creative Writing at Concordia University.
