Klein's debut fiction collection brims with images of boys and men who just don't fit in. They have acne; they are drag queens; they have club feet; they are social misfits; some even have AIDS. His variety of protagonists sheds new light on the role of the outsider in a society obsessed with beauty and sex.

Praise for The Medicine Burns

Klein's evocation of both an individual and a culture maturing and entering a funereal phase is strong, and...economical language hammers these stories home with a single stroke. --Publishers Weekly
