Short Fiction. Short stories from the past twenty-five years by a master of contemporary fiction, collected in book form for the first time. Dixon's quirky style almost renders ordinary exposition unnecessary. Instead, Dixon careens back and forth between machine-gun dialogue and description, mergin thoughts, conversation, and other absurd narrative into a single mind blurring entitiy -- Bob McCullough, The Boston Globe. Stephen Dixon is a two-time finalist for the national Book Award, for FROG and INTERSTATE, and the author of twenty books, among them PLAY AND OTHER STORIES also by Coffee House. The stories in SLEEP have previously appeared in such places as Harper's, Triquarterly, and Best American Short Stories.
