9780801872051: 14 Stories (Johns Hopkins: Poetry and Fiction)

Stephen Dixon's stories and novels have an original, immediately recognizable sound and feel –a weird blend of Franz Kafka and Frank Capra. Readers of his previous work will find in 14 Stories that same wry, inventive, knife-edged humor that has come to characterize his distinctive style. With an adroit use of language and a keen eye for the quirky, offbeat side of human nature, Dixon creates a world as viewed through a fish-eye lens–slightly distorted and off-center, yet recognizable and often familiar.

14 Stories is part comedy, part tragedy, part social comment and part spoof. But most of all it is a highly entertaining series of all-too-plausible vignettes that shows off Stephen Dixon's remarkable talent at its best.

About the Author:

Stephen Dixon has published more than 125 short stories and is the award-winning author of over a dozen books, including the collections Long Made Short and All Gone, available from Johns Hopkins.

Review:

"Dixon's stories, strengthened by their unity, almost have a novel's ability to develop character, to suggest a life outside the confines of the plot."

(Boston Globe)

"Mr. Dixon wields a stubbornly plain-spoken style; he loves all sorts of tricky narrative effects. And he loves even more the tribulations of the fantasizing mind, ticklish in their comedy, alarming in their immediacy."

(New York Times)

"These stories make a highly satisfying collection, not only for their evident craftsmanship but also because of the discriminating intelligence which underpins them."

(Times Literary Supplement)
