520    The eleven beautifully crafted stories in Bad Kansas 
       reveal the complicated underbelly of the country's most 
       flown-over state and the quirky characters that call it 
       home. In this darkly humorous collection, Kansas becomes a
       state of mind as Mandelbaum's characters struggle to 
       define their relationship to home and what it means to 
       stay or leave, to hold on or let go. When a desperate 
       woman finds herself on a date with a rugged man she has 
       nothing in common with, she must decide whether to 
       sacrifice the life of a bear in order to keep the man's 
       affection. After having a nightmare about a mallard, a 
       young man wakes to discover he's choking the woman he 
       loves. When his mother starts dating a slimy pizza parlor 
       owner, a young boy must choose whether to align with his 
       mischievous older brother or remain loyal to his mom. The 
       deeply appealing and peculiar characters in Bad Kansas are
       determined to get what they want, be it love or sex or 
       power, in a world intent on denying them.
