Since the publication of Self-Help, her first collection of stories, Lorrie Moore has been hailed as one of the greatest and most influential voices in American fiction. Her ferociously funny, soulful stories tell of the gulf between men and women, the loneliness of the broken-hearted and the yearned-for, impossible intimacies we crave. Gathered here for the first time in a beautiful hardback edition is the complete stories along with three new and previously unpublished in book form: Paper Losses, The Juniper Tree, Debarking.

Review:

'A quality of observation so intense that it amounts to a form of delicate violence, a slicing through the surface of things.' -- Sunday Telegraph

'An extraordinary short-story writer [and] a deeply moving one.' -- Helen Dunmore, Financial Times

'Her stories are as resonant and unsettling as those of Alice Munro ... sensitive, funny, sometimes despairing, sometimes dauntless.' -- TLS

'Lorrie Moore [has] set the tone of the female-centred comedy of the past fiteen years.' -- Literary Review

'Moore's great talent is cutting to the heart of matters, exploring the darkness in a way that defines black humour.' -- Scotsman

'[Lorrie Moore] manages to be very funny while delivering impressive quantities of pathos and insight.' -- Guardian

Book Description:

Wonderful collection from one of the most acclaimed and influential writers of her generation.
