9780375751509: Nothing But You: Love Stories From The New Yorker

Raymond Carver, Alice Munro, John Updike, Gabriel García Márquez, Mavis Gallant, Julian Barnes, Michael Chabon, Jamaica Kincaid, John O'Hara, Muriel Spark, Ann Beattie, and William Maxwell are among the contributors to Nothing But You: Love Stories from The New Yorker--assembled by Roger Angell, senior editor at The New Yorker. This is the first fiction anthology in more than three decades from the magazine that has defined the American short story for almost a century. As noteworthy for its range as for its excellence, Nothing But You features a stunning array of present and past masters writing about love in all its varieties, from the classic love story to dislocated narratives of weird modern romance. Taken separately, these stories suggest the infinite variety of the human heart. Taken together, they are a literary milestone, a comprehensive review of the way we live and love now.

Review:

For decades The New Yorker has kept the short story in America's literary consciousness. While the sales of novels have eclipsed those of short stories in the marketplace, short-story writers take comfort in the fact that each week their craft is showcased in the pages of one of the country's best-known publications. Now Roger Angell, a senior editor at The New Yorker, has assembled a collection of stories by the likes of John Updike, Alice Munro, Woody Allen, and Raymond Carver. Culled from more than 30 years of issues, these stories are united by the theme of love, a term that covers a multitude of emotions: romantic love, platonic love, parental love, filial love, and love for mankind, not to mention lost love, twisted love, nostalgic love.... These 38 stories cover them all.

From the Back Cover:

"Marvelous, memorable." --The New York Times

"You'll surely be touched, charmed, moved, amused, bemused, intellectually engaged and emotionally charged by these disparate tales of desperate loves, earthy lusts, ethereal longings, unsettled lives." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A wonderful opportunity to feast upon the stories of a most talented group of writers." --The Seattle Times

"A varied assembly of accomplished tales, and a reminder of the perception and skill possessed by several generations of The New Yorker's fiction editors." --Kirkus Reviews
