Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Bausch's stories operate on a heartrendingly human scale [and] imbue his characters with a quiet nobility. (Grade: A)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Richard Bausch is, simply, one of our greatest short story writers." Andrea Barrett

Review:

"A fine, fat collection of 42 tales....[Bausch's] best stories are distinguished by characters whose complexity is simply and economically suggested....This is the book for which Bausch will be remembered." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"[M]asterful....Bausch illuminates both benevolent and malevolent aspects of human nature with dark humor, a spiky imagination, consummate artistry, and unfailing compassion." Donna Seaman, Booklist

Review:

"While this is a strong selection of his best work, it still isn't in the same league as the early Updike stories, for example. There's a hint of academic exercise to these efforts, and Bausch doesn't try to push the boundaries. Recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"Richard Bausch is a master of the short-story form, capturing the everyday lives of ordinary people with a flair and eye that make the mundane exciting and suspenseful." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"A memorable collection." Boston Herald

Review:

"No writer has a finer insight into the delicate nuances of the human heart than Richard Bausch." Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

Review:

"A master storyteller at his finest." Charlotte Observer

Review:

"Bausch writes about things that matter." Raleigh News & Observer

Review:

"Bausch [is] a magical storyteller." St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Review:

"Richard Bausch is a master of the short story." New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

A 2004 PEN/Malamud Award winner, this collection celebrates the work of American artist Richard Bausch — a writer the New York Times calls a master of the short story. By turns tender, raw, heartbreaking, and riotously funny, the many voices of this definitive forty-two-story collection (seven of which appear here for the first time) defy expectation, attest to Bausch's remarkable range and versatility, and affirm his place alongside such acclaimed story writers as John Cheever, Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, and Grace Paley.
