Unbuilt Projects
Paul Lisicky

Four Way
2012 • 116 pp. 6 x 9"
Fiction & Literature

$16.95 Paperback, 978-1-935536-25-3

Short—some under a page—stories that explore memory, gay coming-of-age, and the inner life

The many subjects of the individual short fiction pieces within Unbuilt Projects intersect God, sex, family, childhood, and adulthood. Fluctuating between descriptions of the exterior world and the speaker’s interior world, these stories are at once lyric and narrative, funny and heartbreaking, beautifully rich and stark. Here the subjective collides with the objective. These short, compelling stories show Lisicky at the top of his form.
