"Robison is both wise and entertaining, a technician with a sense of humor, a minimalist with a good eye for what can be salvaged from lives of quiet desperation." --The New York Times Book Review Continuing Counterpoint's reintroducing of the complete works of Mary Robison is Days, her first collection of short stories, originally published in 1979. The population of Robison's fiction is the stunned citizenry of a world vaporized beneath them, people who say "all right" and "okay" often, not because they consent, but because nothing counts. Still, there are chronicles of small victories here, small only because, as Robison so precisely documents, larger victories are impossible.
