"In Ibiza Man, Michael Lieberman gathers an array of inventive and unforgettable stories. In this, his second collection, he demonstrates his abilities in precisely distilled, unflinchingly honest studies of human connection and disconnection.
From the deliverance of an English working girl's dysfunctional relationship to a spoiled aristocrat by the mysterious Ibiza man; the fate of a trouble female attorney's long lost lover revealed at a lunch with Mike Arnold; a rock star's return to his twentieth high school reunion, including a dance with his most potent past muse; to the punch line, the exclamation point to a well-intentioned, but disastrous family reunion, Lieberman evokes painful and tender truths, poetic, painful, and deeply political.
The well-meaning protagonists of Ibiza Man are caught—to both disastrous and hilarious effect—in the maelstrom of family and social upheaval, life in the modern world, and the intimate connection between the foreign, familiar, and the inescapably human.
In Ibiza Man Michael Lieberman delves deep into the heart of modern life in a work that overflows with hilarity, heartache, and irony.
