Gilbert's spry stories roam from Wyoming to New York City, from Minnesota to Texas. Cowboys, strippers, magicians--her characters are "everyday people whose...rich exterior lives mask simple, if brave, hopes and dreams" (Detroit Free Press). "A killer collection," said Frederick Barthelme. Muscular and insightful, authentic and uproarious, these stories mark the debut of a major new literary talent.

Product Description:

A collection of short stories in which the characters misjudge things, find themselves in the wrong place, and who doggedly follow the wrong path, such as the vegetable market stallholder who decides to stand for election against the local Mafia boss.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of the story collection PILGRIMS, a finalist for the 1998 PEN/Hemingway Award.
