The Heat and the Hot Earth, Hey Hey Lonesome by Adam Gnade

(Eberhardt) I recently heard that all the characters in John Hughes films were supposed to live in the same neighborhood. The Home Alone house was next to Ferris Buehler’s house was across the street from the Griswolds, and across the wrong side of the tracks lives Andie and Duckie. I mention that because it seems like in all of Gnade’s books the SoCal youth that negotiate the world are friends and associates across titles. These two novellas (the latter the first Tumblr-core piece of literature) forward Gnade’s poetical prose style, and may someday make a great movie. With McCauley Culkin pumping his fist!
