Summary

THE CUPID CURSE - A Comedy Holiday Short 
 
It's February 14 and Cupid's been fired from the job.  But he's not the only one with problems this Valentine's Day! 
Producer April Hart's TV sitcom is seeking to secure syndication and she only needs tonight's special season finale to get them over the line.  But it's risky show business broadcasting live and she's losing actors camera left, right and well, centre stage.  The role of Cupid is going begging--right up until the real thing crash-lands on her lawn. 
With the help of Doctor Ethan, her neighbour next door, can she convince the depressed deity that he is the god for the job?  Can the Lord of Love impress his bosses enough to get his old position back?  Or will it be curtains and a wrap for everyone instead?

    “[A] brilliant, triumphantly lurid writer as well as a supremely talented, elegant stylist whose prose is smart and nervy. He might also be the last literary outlaw in mainstream American fiction.” —Bret Easton Ellis 
    Internationally acclaimed writer Dennis Cooper continues to study the material he's always explored honestly, but does so now—in stories—with a sense of awareness and a satirical touch that exploits and winks at his mastery of this world. As it has done for decades, Cooper’s taut, controlled prose lays bare the compulsions and troubling emptiness of the human soul.

    What is it like to be a young person in the Arab world today? This lively collection of eight short stories about Arab teenagers living in Iraq, Tunisia, Egypt, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and a Palestinian refugee camp engagingly depicts young people's experiences growing up in the Middle East. The characters, drawn from urban and rural settings and from different classes as well as a mix of countries, confront situations involving friends, family, teachers, and society at large. Along with some specifically Middle Eastern issues, such as strife in Iraq, the hardships of life in a Palestinian refugee camp, and honor crimes, the young people deal with more familiar concerns such as loyalty to friends, overcoming personal insecurities, dreams of a future career, and coping with divorcing parents. Coming of age in a complicated world, they meet life with courage, determination, and, not least of all, humor. With accompanying notes that provide contextual information, Santa Claus in Baghdad brings a fresh perspective to youth literature about the Arab world.
