9780060956226: The Stories of Richard Bausch

A 2004 PEN/Malamud Award winner, this collection celebrates the work of American artist Richard Bausch -- a writer the New York Times calls "a master of the short story." By turns tender, raw, heartbreaking, and riotously funny, the many voices of this definitive forty-two-story collection (seven of which appear here for the first time) defy expectation, attest to Bausch's remarkable range and versatility, and affirm his place alongside such acclaimed story writers as John Cheever, Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, and Grace Paley.

About the Author:

Richard Bausch is the author of nine other novels and seven volumes of short stories. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, Playboy, GQ, Harper's Magazine, and other publications, and has been featured in numerous best-of collections, including the O. Henry Awards' Best American Short Stories and New Stories from the South. In 2004 he won the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story.

Review:

“Perfection ... many deserve inclusion among the best American stories of the past 20 years.” (Boston Globe)

“Effortlessly engaging...that closing the book feels like pushing the door shut on some clamorous party.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Beautiful ... a delight to read.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

Grade: ‘A’ “Read just a few of these staggeringly literate and well-observed short fictions and you’ll soon realize that it’s not only God who dwells in the details.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“The book for which Bausch will be remembered....A fine, fat collection of 42 tales.” (Kirkus Reviews (Starred))

“A memorable collection.” (Boston Herald)

“A master storyteller at his finest.” (Charlotte Observer)

“Bausch [is] a magical storyteller.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

“Bausch writes about things that matter.” (Raleigh News & Observer)

“A literary treasure.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

“Precision of thought, the philosophical framework of a true aesthetic, pervades these stories.” (Village Voice)

“Bausch draws the reader into lives that seem real. His characters look and sound like ... ourselves.” (Seattle Times)

“Richard Bausch is, simply, one of our greatest short story writers.” (Andrea Barrett)

“Richard Bausch is a master of the short story.” (New York Times Book Review)

“No writer has a finer insight into the delicate nuances of the human heart than Richard Bausch.” (Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain)
