Description
..".an American talent..."--Stephen King
Pollack writes about times of tragedy and transition insightfully, aware of their everyday quality and of their gravity. In the Mouth is a window onto the amazing tenderness and irrationality of human life.
One story, "The Bris," has been selected for The Best American Short-Stories 2008 (Edited by Stephen King and Heidi Pitlor).
"Eileen Pollock writes with great acuity, humor, and intelligent resign-ation about the various ways family love is called upon and revealed. This book is terrific company."--Lorrie Moore
"These are funny, rueful, wise stories, steeped in absurdity, pain, possibility --the work of a writer who has lived."--Gish Jen
