The Collected Stories av Leonard Michaels
Det finns inga diskussioner på LibraryThing om den här boken.
Leonard Michaels was a master of the short story. His collections are among the most admired, influential, and exciting of the last half century.The Collected Storiesbrings them back into print, from the astonishing debutGoing Places(1969) to the uncollected last stories, unavailable since they appeared inThe New Yorker,Threepenny Review, andPartisan Review. At every stage in his career, Michaels produced taut, spare tales of sex, love, and other adult intimacies: gossip, argument, friendship, guilt, rage. A fearless writer--"destructive, joyful, brilliant, purely creative," in the words of John Hawkes--Michaels probed his characters' motivations with brutal humor and startling frankness; his ear for the vernacular puts him in the company of Philip Roth, Grace Paley, and Bernard Malamud. Remarkable for its compression and cadences, his prose isnothing short of addictive. The Collected Storiesis a landmark. "Leonard Michaels's stories stand alongside those of his best Jewish contemporaries -- Grace Paley and Philip Roth." -- Mona Simpson,The New York Times Book Review
