9780062258137: Stay Up with Me: Stories

The stories in Tom Barbash's evocative and often darkly funny collection explore the myriad ways we try to connect to one another and to the sometimes cruel world around us. The newly single mother in 'The Break' interferes with her son's love life over his Christmas vacation from college. The anxious young man in 'Balloon Night' persists in hosting his and his wife's annual watch-the-Macy's-Thanksgiving-Day-Parade-floats-be-inflated party, while trying to keep the myth of his marriage equally afloat. The young narrator in 'The Women' watches his widowed father become the toast of Manhattan's midlife dating scene, as he struggles to find his own footing. The characters in Stay Up With Me find new truths when the old ones have given out or shifted course. Barbash laces his narratives with sharp humour, psychological acuity, and pathos, creating deeply resonant and engaging stories that pierce the heart and linger in the imagination.

Review:

'Many of these stories appear gentle, but they mine emotional depths that are frightening...Barbash has been compared to John Cheever, and that sense of a disturbed suburban consciousness permeates this collection' -- Sunday Herald

'Staying up late is exactly what you'll find yourself doing in the company of this highly satisfying short story collection' -- Independent
