This hilarious collection of stories proves that "millennials" really are just spoiled little brats! The gem in this collection is the novelette-length "Sell Out" which features a time travelling 1914 Ellis Island immigrant in competition with his 2014 Brooklyn-hipster great-great grandson. Truly LOL!
Twenty years ago, Barney the Dinosaur told the nation's children they were special. We're still paying the price. From "one of the funniest writers in America"* comes a collection of stories culled from the front lines of the millennial culture wars. Rife with failing rock bands, student loans, and participation trophies, "Spoiled Brats "is about a generation of narcissists-and the well-meaning boomers who made them that way. A hardworking immigrant is preserved for a century in pickle brine. A helicopter mom strives to educate her demon son. And a family of hamsters struggles to survive in a private-school homeroom. Surreal, shrewd, and surprisingly warm, these stories are as resonant as they are hilarious. *Jimmy So, Daily Beast
