Description

A "New York Times "Notable Book
An NPR Best Book of 2012
These eight powerful stories, dazzling in their display of language and imagination, show a celebrated short-story writer and novelist grappling with the great questions of modern life.
From the title story, a provocative portrait of two marriages inspired by Raymond Carver's masterpiece, to "Peep Show" and "How We Avenged the Blums," two stories that return to the author's classic themes of sexual longing and ingenuity in the face of adversity, these stories affirm Nathan Englander's place at the very forefront of contemporary American fiction.
