About this title

Synopsis:

Book by

From Publishers Weekly:

This newcomer to the annual short fiction anthology scene overflows with fresh talent, showcasing works by writers who have not yet published a book of fiction. Each of these 20 stories (appearing previously in the New Yorker , Paris Review , Quarry , etc.) has an emotional resonance that lingers long after the last word has been read. For the most part, editor Hill ( An American Christmas: A Sampler of Contemporary Stories and Poems ) has chosen tales concerned with people struggling desperately to wrest meaning from their mundane existences. Perhaps the most startling--and invigorating--piece is Daniel Hayes's "What I Wanted Most of All," a set of confessional, stream-of-consciousness monologues in which the unnamed "I" examines various events of his past in an attempt to gauge the extent of his psychic growth. Also salient are Sharon Sakson's "The Girl from the Red Cross," in which a shallow nurse experiences a tragically brief awakening while working in a Beirut hospital, and Elizabeth Graver's "Square Dance," wherein a young woman's physical affliction provides a metaphor for the sporadic--but often excruciating--pain of everyday life.
