Store Next Door - Season 2 Ep 2 - Gary Lippman, We Loved The World But Could Not Stay

by Doug Cooper | Store Next Door - Season 2

Gary Lippman, has followed his acclaimed novel Set the Controls for the Heart of Sharon Tate with another masterpiece. Praised by Laurie Anderson, Tom Robbins, and Lorraine Bracco, WE LOVED THE WORLD BUT COULD NOT STAY is no dry philosophical tome. Offering up psychedelic portraits of time travelers and taxi drivers, a wrestling match between ancient Gods, and the meaning of a mural on the wall of a Miami Beach pizzeria, Lippman deploys a unique artistic sensibility, one that combines Borscht Belt-style one-liners and surreal takes on American pop iconography.
