In a wide range of forms and tones, the fifteen stories in Andy Mozina’s new collection center on high-stakes performances by characters trying to gratify both deep and superficial needs, often with unexpected consequences. Desperate to find a full-time job, a pizza delivery man is fooled into a humiliating sexual demonstration by a couple at a Midway Motor Lodge. A troubled young man tries to end his father’s verbal harassment by successfully hunting a polar bear. And in the title story, a flavor engineer at Frito-Lay tries to win his boss’s heart with a new strategy for Doritos that aims to reposition the brand from snack food to main course.
