A middle-aged rock star has a nervous breakdown in a posh Mexican hotel. A sullen teen with a DUI contemplates life during court-ordered community service. A man decides between his girlfriend and her roommate in the middle of an earthquake. A gay professor in '70s New York uses yoga to get over his young, dangerous, closeted ex-lover. These are just some of the complex, fascinating milieus that Chicago author Sally Weigel explores in her new story collection with the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, "Get Up Tim," a series of dense character studies with a sprinkling of magical-realism thrown in. Her second book with CCLaP after the 2009 youth/war novella "Too Young to Fall Asleep," and with several of these stories already appearing in admired lit journals around the US, these probing looks at the contemporary human condition take us from teen prescription-drug parties to the dumpsters of homeless Pilsen, and even to a dark fairytale alt-universe, Weigel holding it all together with her trademark style and dry wit. The love child of Joe Meno and Joan Didion, this short and intense manuscript shows the flowering of a strong, young voice in the literary community, and fans of Weigel's first book will be delighted to see her potential realized even more potently here.
