Fiction. In her new collection, the first since her PEN-West Award-winning MY HORSE AND OTHER STORIES (Sun & Moon Press, 1992), Stacey Levine gives us twenty-eight new, feral, untamable stories, in myriad modes, from laugh- out-loud funny, to Kafka-nightmarish, lyrical, elegiac, and philosophical. Rooted in the quotidian and often mundane details of everyday life, these stories turn our expectations upside down. Levine, the author of, most recently, the novel Frances Johnson, again shows why many consider her a genius of contemporary fiction.
