Whether it’s a report from the real Cannes or a young couple discovering that reading Jacques Derrida aloud can lull their child to sleep, Jim Hanas finds the strange in the everyday and the everyday in the strange. Hanas writes a lean and powerful line that makes even absurd situations—a man who cries professionally, a beauty queen leaving her slob boyfriend for an astronaut—seem painfully familiar.Why They Cried answers its own question and the answer is funnier than you think.

Title: Why They Cried
Author: Jim Hanas
The Rumpus published a positive review of Why They Cried by Jim Hanas. Reviewer Glenn Lester wrote, "These stories by Jim Hanas are about something important: how much suffering arises in the gap between our public identities and whatever kernel of self is left inside... Hanas writes with a swift clip, deploys images so judiciously and vividly, and demonstrates real insight into the way we live now."
