Synopsis:

Crossing the boundaries between fabulist literature, science fiction, and magical realism, the stories in this collection offer a valuable glimpse into the evolution of Carol Emshwiller?s ideas and style during her more than 50-year career. Influenced by J. G. Ballard, Steven Millhauser, Philip K. Dick, and Lydia Davis, Emshwiller has a range of works that is impressive and demonstrates her refusal to be labeled or to stick to one genre. This exhilarating new collection marks the first time many of the early stories have been published in book form and is evidence of the genius of Emshwiller, one of America?s most versatile and imaginative authors.

About the Author: Carol Emshwiller has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant and a Pushcart Prize. She has received the Philip K. Dick, Hugo, and Nebula awards for her novels and short stories, which include Carmen Dog, Mister Boots, The Mount, The Secret City, and The Start of the End of It All. Her stories have appeared in McSweeney's, Omni, and The Voice Literary Supplement. She lives in New York City.
