Nothing But You: Love Stories from the New Yorker

by

Nothing But You: Love Stories from the New Yorker Cover

 

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.

Review:

"Marvelous, memorable." The New York Times

Review:

"You'll surely be touched, charmed, moved, amused, bemused, intellectually engaged and emotionally charged by these disparate tales of desperate loves, earthy lusts, ethereal longings, unsettled lives." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"A wonderful opportunity to feast upon the stories of a most talented group of writers." The Seattle Times

Review:

"A varied assembly of accomplished tales, and a reminder of the perception and skill possessed by several generations of The New Yorker's fiction editors." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

The bestselling, critically acclaimed anthology of stories on the theme of love, culled from the pages of The New Yorker "--the magazine that has defined American short fiction for almost a century."
