About the Book

Baby, You're Gonna Be Mine: Stories

A new story collection from the New York Times bestselling author, whom NPR calls “such an inventive and witty writer,” that is deeply compassionate, darkly funny, and refreshingly original

In BABY, YOU’RE GONNA BE MINE, Kevin Wilson’s first story collection in nearly a decade, Wilson combines his signature quirkiness with his keen eye for emotional complexity to explore the fraught relationship between parents and children.

“Wildfire Johnny” is the story of a man who discovers a magic razor that allows him to travel back in time. “Scroll Through the Weapons” is about a couple taking care of their underfed and almost feral nieces and nephews. “Signal to the Faithful” follows a boy as he takes a tense road trip with his priest. And “Baby, You’re Gonna Be Mine,” the title story, is about a narcissistic rock star who moves back home during a rough patch. These stories all build on each other in strange and remarkable ways, showcasing Wilson’s crackling wit and big heart.

Filled with imagination, humor and wit, BABY, YOU’RE GONNA BE MINE is an exuberant collection of captivating and charmingly bizarre stories that promise to burrow their way into your heart and soul.
