EMPEROR OF THE AIR "explores tricky family relationships and tender moments of self-discovery with a voice of compassion rarely found in contemporary short fiction" (San Francisco Chronicle).

About the Author:

Ethan Canin lives in Iowa City and San Francisco.

From AudioFile:

Male self-recognition, differentiated by age and experience, is the unifying theme in these four stories from Ethan Canin's first collection. The author's narration is a bit dull and slow, with no real use of vocal characterizations. It sounds as if he is so entranced with his words that he feels no embellishment is needed. He is wrong. Canin's stories, while somewhat compelling, may not keep listeners interested enough to ignore his voice. M.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
