Description


"Radio Iris has a lovely, eerie, anxious quality to it. Iris's observations are funny, and the story has a dramatic otherworldly payoff that is unexpected and triumphant."
Deb Olin Unferth, The New York Times Book Review
"A noirish nod to the monotony of work."
O: The Oprah Magazine
"Kinney is a Southern California Camus."
Los Angeles Magazine
"'The Office' as scripted by Kafka."
Minneapolis Star-Tribune
" An] astute evocation of office weirdness and malaise."
The Wall Street Journal

Radio Iris follows Iris Finch, a twentysomething socially awkward daydreamer and receptionist at Larmax, Inc., a company whose true function she doesn t understand (though she's heard her boss refer to himself as a businessman ).

Gradually, her boss erratic behavior becomes even more erratic, her coworkers begin disappearing, the phone stops ringing, making her role at Larmax moot, and a mysterious man appears to be living in the office suite next door.

Radio Iris is an ambient, eerie dream of a novel, written with remarkable precision and grace that could also serve as an appropriate allegory for our modern recession.

Anne-Marie Kinney's short fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Indiana Review, Black Clock, Keyhole, and Satellite Fiction.
