Why They CriedeBook - 2010
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.
