Called one of our brightest cultural commentators by Publishers Weekly, Kit Reed draws from life with a difference. This new collection brings together thirty-four of her strong, original stories, from early classics like The Wait and Winter to six never-before-collected short stories, including The Legend of Troop 13 and Wherein We Enter the Museum. An early favorite, Automatic Tiger, is the first in a series of Reed's stories about animals. There's a monkey who grinds out bestsellers with the help of a creative writing app. Her uncanny black dog can enter a crowded room and sit down at the feet of the next man to die. Her characters confront war in various arenas: mother/daughter battles, the war of the sexes, the struggles of men scarred by war. Kit Reed's self-described transgenred fiction is confirmation of an extraordinary talent (The Financial Times). The range and complexity of her work speaks for itself in The Story Until Now.
