"In the wake of a thirty-fifth birthday too well celebrated, Bob Bunting discovers a penchant for baby bottles... he also starts literally getting into a book's setting and predicaments, though characters and developments differ from what he remembers... Many more baby bottles figure into Straub's masterly novella whose trajectory is inevitable but not that predictable." — Booklist
The Buffalo Hunter
by Peter Straub
About the Book:
The Buffalo Hunter chronicles the fixations of a 35-year-old man who numbs his fear of women in some very unusual ways. This Peter Straub novella was inspired by an art opening that stuck with the author longer than expected, leading him to purchase an unusual number of baby bottles and discover the haunting story of Bobby Bunting in the process...
About the Inspiration:
"(The Buffalo Hunter) was inspired by a show — an art opening. Her work is often primal, and this show included several beds with baby bottles lashed to them. The next morning, as soon as I woke up, I wondered what that kind of thing would look like if it were made without any artistic impulse. And what kind of person would make it? That morning, I went out and bought a bunch of baby bottles. Bobby Bunting came into view very early on. I knew I wanted to write a novella, and I had so much fun that it turned out to be a little longer than I had expected it to be."
