Synopses & Reviews
“A restlessly inventive collection, as the best story collections so often are—comic and tender, ironic and earnest, deadpan and passionate. A distinctive new voice, from a distinctive new press.”—Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl
Includes “Wait,” a Best American Short Stories 2007 inclusion.
"Roy Kesey tempers his prodigious imagination with fine syntactic control, so that his stories - like Donald Barthelme's - feel simultaneously free-wheeling and precise. All Over is an exhilarating collection -- funny, harrowing, smart, odd, and inventive." -- Chris Bacheldor
An heir to Donald Barthelme, Kesey's stories are energetic, wild, and still have a heart.
