Mafia on Prozac
(Included in the volume UP, DOWN, STRANGE, CHARMED, BEAUTY, AND TRUTH; LILA ON THE WALL; AND MAFIA ON PROZAC)
THE STORY: Jay and Tee are a couple of hit-men sitting by the ocean and reflecting on how their lives turned out. Their intended victim, Matt, awaits his fate in a burlap sack. When Al Capone visits in a dream, the outraged and desperate Matt gets dragged into refereeing the hit-men’s argument about the mob’s future. (3 men.)
"…truly inspired moments of comedy…[In] Edward Allan Baker’s MAFIA ON PROZAC, a pair of hit men, owing more to Tom Stoppard than to Mario Puzo, argue over such highfalutin’ issues as fate versus free will.” —The New York Times.
