Binocular Vision: New and Selected Stories by Edith Pearlman
Binocular Vision: New and Selected Stories

The Book Bully, January 2, 2012

To echo Ann Patchett in her introduction to this amazing short story collection, "Why aren't more people raving about Edith Pearlman?!" I defy any reader to walk away from even one of these stories without a dropped jaw. Pearlman is a master at establishing character and atmosphere within a page, sometimes a paragraph. Each one of these gems plunges you into a new world but just as quickly drops you off at the exit. Often after finishing a story I found myself staring out the window, stunned and awed.

Even if you claim short stories aren't your cup of tea, challenge that belief and pick up this book. I have a feeling you'll thank me.
