There’s Eric, fiercely protective of his brother Mickey-but he has a secret that holds together his past and future. Sonia, struggling to live the life of a good Muslim girl in a foreign America. Gingerbread and Keisha, who fall in love despite themselves. Life Is Funny strips away the defenses of one group of teenagers living today, right now-and shows their unbearably real lives.

“First novelist Frank breaks new ground with a realistic, lyrical novel about eleven teens in Brooklyn now . . . Their talk is painful, rough, sexy, funny, fearful, furious, gentle. Each chapter, each vignette within a chapter, builds to its own climax, and the stories weave together to surprise you.” (Booklist, starred review)

“An astounding first effort.” (Kirkus Reviews, pointer review) …more

About This Book:
In the J.D. Salinger benchmark “A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” Seymour Glass floats his beach mate Sybil on a raft and tells her about these creatures’ tragic flaw. Though they seem normal, if one swims into a hole filled with bananas, it will overeat until it’s too fat to escape. Meanwhile, Seymour’s wife, Muriel, is back at their Florida hotel, assuring her mother not to In the J.D. Salinger benchmark “A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” Seymour Glass floats his beach mate Sybil on a raft and tells her about these creatures’ tragic flaw. Though they seem normal, if one swims into a hole filled with bananas, it will overeat until it’s too fat to escape. Meanwhile, Seymour’s wife, Muriel, is back at their Florida hotel, assuring her mother not to worry–Seymour hasn’t lost control. Mention of a book he sent her from Germany and several references to his psychiatrist lead the reader to believe that World War II has undone him.
The war hangs over these wry stories of loss and occasionally unsuppressed rage. Salinger’s children are fragile, odd, hypersmart, whereas his grownups (even the materially content) seem beaten down by circumstances–some neurasthenic, others (often female) deeply unsympathetic. The greatest piece in this disturbing book may be “The Laughing Man,” which starts out as a man’s recollection of the pleasures of storytelling and ends with the intersection between adult need and childish innocence. The narrator remembers how, at nine, he and his fellow Comanches would be picked up each afternoon by the Chief–a Staten Island law student paid to keep them busy. At the end of each day, the Chief winds them down with the saga of a hideously deformed, gentle, world-class criminal. With his stalwart companions, which include “a glib timber wolf” and “a lovable dwarf,” the Laughing Man regularly crosses the Paris-China border in order to avoid capture by “the internationally famous detective” Marcel Dufarge and his daughter, “an exquisite girl, though something of a transvestite.” The masked hero’s luck comes to an end on the same day that things go awry between the Chief and his girlfriend, hardly a coincidence. “A few minutes later, when I stepped out of the Chief’s bus, the first thing I chanced to see was a piece of red tissue paper flapping in the wind against the base of a lamppost. It looked like someone’s poppy-petal mask. I arrived home with my teeth chattering uncontrollably and was told to go straight to bed.” …more
