Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most elegant and inventive contemporary writers, Harry Mathews has created an accomplished and diverse body of work. This volume collects the best of his short fiction, from the hilarious "The Broadcast, " in which the narrator learns from a radio program that everything he needs in life should fit into one sock, to "Calibrations of Latitude, " which follows Sir Joseph Pernican on a meandering and seemingly aimless journey (through the city and through his imagination) that in the end proves not aimless at all, but rather purposeful and deeply moving.

Synopsis:

The best of Harry Mathew's short fiction.
