Someone to Watch Over Me brings together twelve stories by one of America's most honored writers of the short story.
Richard Bausch is a master of the intimate moment, of the ways we seek to make lasting connections to one another and to the world. Few writers evoke the complexities of love as subtly as Richard Bausch, and a few capture the poignancy of the sudden insight or the rhythms of ordinary conversation with such delicacy and humor.
To read this book is to be reminded again of the power of short fiction to thrill and move us, to make us laugh, or cry. In these profound glimpses into the private fears, joys and sorrows of people we know, we find revealed a whole range of human experience, told with extraordinary force, clarity and compassion.
