The Plastic Factory
Ron Kolm

“The quintessential short fiction of its time, The Plastic Factory's minimalist surface sits atop a terse inventory of the inner costs of living outside the professional managerial bullet train, looking through the display windows at the swatch-life, emerging with the antithesis of the yuppie-preppy sensibility. Every phrase glistens with the dull sheen of the bog slime rising all around these characters acting out the anomie of the soul in the Reagan era when the American Dream got hijacked from everyone outside that cozy 1% at the top of the food chain. This is the voice of their prey: listen up!” — Robert Siegle, author of Suburban Ambush: Downtown Writing and the Fiction of Insurgency

“From the silence of the industrial countryside, Kolm has written an elegy for time wasted through work. The Plastic Factory accumulates its power through attention to detail and process. The botched life of the narrator takes on a certain sad grandeur.” — Thomas McGonigle, author of Going to Patchogue
