A story of lost love and young cats and high school and regret and rental cars and, um.... "I should clear up right now that Perky Erect Nipples is the name of my cat." Or so claims Isaac in the first sentence of this droll novella from Theric Jepson. But regardless of his cat's name, Isaac has other things on his mind. Including the girl who got away but still haunts his memory, and her, um.... More
Isaac may have a cat named Perky Erect Nipples and he may insist that's why his story is called what it's called, but the facts are clear: he's haunted by the memory of some literal nipples, and he's headed to his high-school reunion in hopes to finally say what he should have said all those years ago to that sweet little Nazarene girl. What Isaac does not know is that the moment he needs to discuss has stuck with her all these years as well—but for very different reasons. And she's also headed home to Oregon to speak with the boy who turned her into something new.
Theric Jepson is author of the "chaotic but hilariously funny" (Standard Examiner) Byuck and other fictions grotesque and literary which tend to earn their readers disapproving looks when laughing too hard at the coffee shop.
