Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the grand tradition of Neapolitan ice cream, ZZ Top, and Cerberus, the tri-headed guardian of Hades, this set brings together individual short-fiction collections by three talented practitioners of the short-short form: Sarah Manguso, Dave Eggers, and Deb Olin Unferth.

Synopsis:

In the grand tradition of Neapolitan ice cream, ZZ Top, and Cerberus, the tri-headed guardian of Hades, this set combines individual, short fiction collections by three talented practitioners of the short-short form. Mangusos Hard to Admit and Harder to Escape is a series of crystalline recollections of her childhood misadventures; Eggers How the Water Feels to the Fishes brings a deadpan absurdism to the intimacy and vision of his earlier work; and Unferths rollicking Minor Robberies unleashes a horde of off-kilter characters and their indelible misadventures. Each authors work comes in its own hardcover, foil-stamped volume, and the three volumes are housed in an elegant slipcase.
