“Ranging from historical and autobiographical fiction to modern tall tales, Englander's stories are written with a ferocious, startling energy. They also pose difficult questions--dilemmas requiring Solomonic wisdom to resolve--and they don't let anyone off the hook. Above all, Englander is after the truth, and he takes notions of transparency to ends both logical and absurd to make his characters--and his readers--bare their souls and see what's there. This is powerful fiction that will haunt you after you close the book.”
-- Laurie Greer, Politics & Prose Books and Coffee Shop, Washington, DC

The author of the sensational national bestseller "For the Relief of Unbearable Urges" and "The Ministry of Special Cases" returns with a commanding new collection of short stories.
