Diane Williams, an American master of the short story who will "rewire your brain" (NPR), is back with a collection in which she once again expands the possibilities of fiction.

These stories depict ordinary moments—a visit to the doctor's office or a married couple's hundredth dance together—but within the quotidian, Williams delivers a lifetime of insecurities, lusts, rejections, and revelations, making her work equally discomfiting and amusing. With unmatched wit in every sentence, Williams captures whole universes in a story, delivering visionary insights into what it means to be human.

Williams's devotees will be newly enthralled by her elegantly strange, bewitching stories in How High?—That High. Those who have yet to meet "the godmother of flash fiction" (The Paris Review) will find an extraordinary introduction in this book.
