“I am much more interested in the people who are not forever trying to be known”: N. West Moss with David Ebenbach, discussing their new books The Subway Stops at Bryant Park and The Guy We Didn’t Invite to the Orgy and other stories.
After an experimental operation goes mysteriously right, Jonathan finds himself at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, chained to a statue of Venus. He needs no food and breathes water like air. Bonus: He’s immortal. Jonathan’s meditations on love (namely his unfaithful wife, Kitty, who thinks the experiment failed) take him on an adventure to the mid-Atlantic ridge, into a volcanic shaft, and back to land–where he becomes a demon statue, a nimble thief, and even a super-hero.
