Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Raymond Carver, Alice Munro, John Updike, Gabriel García Márquez, Mavis Gallant, Julian Barnes, Michael Chabon, Jamaica Kincaid, John O'Hara, Muriel Spark, Ann Beattie, and William Maxwell are among the contributors to Nothing But You: Love Stories from The New Yorker--assembled by Roger Angell, senior editor at The New Yorker. This is the first fiction anthology in more than three decades from the magazine that has defined the American short story for almost a century. As noteworthy for its range as for its excellence, Nothing But You features a stunning array of present and past masters writing about love in all its varieties, from the classic love story to dislocated narratives of weird modern romance. Taken separately, these stories suggest the infinite variety of the human heart. Taken together, they are a literary milestone, a comprehensive review of the way we live and love now.

Synopsis:

A landmark anthology of fiction on the theme of love from the magazine that has defined the American short story for almost a century. Not all the stories gathered here have love or romance as their sole and central focus. But, taken together, they dramatize how affairs of the heart affect--permeate--every other aspect of our lives. Illustrations throughout. 448 pp. National ads. 25,000 print.
