Sintesi dell'editore

Mary Gaitskill returns with a luminous new collection of stories - her first in more than 10 years.

In "College Town 1980", young people adrift in Ann Arbor, Michigan, debate the meaning of personal strength at the start of the Reagan era; in the urban fairy tale "Mirror Ball", a young man steals a girl's soul during a one-night stand; and in "The Little Boy", a woman haunted by the death of her husband is finally able to grieve through a mysterious encounter with a needy child.

Each story delivers the powerful, original language and the dramatic engagement of the intelligent mind with the craving body - or of the intelligent body with the craving mind - that has come to be seen as stunningly emblematic of Gaitskill's fiction.

Brilliant and unnerving

The first time I have read Mary Gaitskill and I now want to read everything. There is a mystical quality to her acute and particular observations and descriptions of human experience. I love her sentences.

Just when you think there’s no more, there’s more.

Such stunning masterful storytelling. A marathon for her. A thrilling surprising ride for me that kept taking me to important places.
