Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This new book of stories confirms Christine Schutts brilliant reputation as an important American writer. Like Emily Dickinson, and with the same secretive precision, Schutt unfolds a deeply intimate vision, revealing to us, as only short stories can, bare-boned glimpses into the most private of realms."—David Means, author of The Secret Goldfish

 

Christine Schutt's distinct gifts are again on display in her much anticipated second collection of stories. With prose that is at once sensual and spare, dreamlike and deliberate, Schutt gives voice to what most keep hidden. Her characters—rumpled, damned, redeemed, and persevering—struggle to find cover in an unsettled world of skewed desire. Startling and smartly wrought, A DAY, A NIGHT, ANOTHER DAY, SUMMER is an impressive work by a rare talent.

 

"With A Day, a Night, Another Day, Summer, Schutt adds another notch to her oeuvre, offering a set of intense, dark, and daring stories that have all the qualities of a summer thriller . . . Her stories feel forbidden in the best way."—Rain Taxi Review of Books

 

"[Schutts] style runs closer to poetry than prose . . . The effect is deeply moving."—Newsday

 

Christine Schutt is the author of the short-story collection Nightwork and the novel Florida, a National Book Award Finalist. Her work, which has garnered an O. Henry Prize and a Pushcart Prize, is published widely in literary journals. She lives and teaches in New York.

Synopsis:

With prose that is at once sensual and spare, dreamlike and deliberate, Christine Schutt gives voice in this collection to what most keep hidden. Many of the stories take place in the home, where what is behind the thin domestic barriers of doors tends toward violence, unseemly sexual encounters, and mental anguish. Schutt opens these doors in sudden, bold moments and exposes the unsettling intimacy of the rooms and corridors of our innermost lives. Yet at the same time, her characters are often hopeful, even optimistic.

Startling and smartly wrought, A Day, a Night, Another Day, Summer is a breathtaking follow-up to Schutt's widely revered debut collection, Nightwork, and her critically acclaimed debut novel, Florida, which was a National Book Award Finalist.
