The collected stories of an award-winning author who has been compared to Alice Munro, John Updike – and even Chekhov
Tenderly, observantly, incisively, Edith Pearlman captures life on the page like few other writers-its dilemmas, its loves, its complexity. Spanning 40 years of writing-and from tsarist Russia to London during the Blitz, from Central America to the coast of Maine, from Jerusalem to the fictional suburb of Godolphin, Massachusetts-these astonishing stories show a writer of the most exquisitely turned prose, with a sens- ibility all her own: imaginative, compassionate, funny and wise.
