[Read by the author -- Lorrie Moore]

''Fifty years from now, it may well turn out that the work of very few American writers has as much to say about what it means to be alive in our time as that of Lorrie Moore'' (Harper's).

A literary event -- a new collection of stories by one of America's most beloved and admired short story writers, her first collection in fifteen years. -- In these eight masterful stories, Lorrie Moore, in a perfect blend of craft and bewitched spirit, explores the passage of time and summons up its inevitable sorrows and hilarious pitfalls to reveal her own exquisite, singular wisdom. -- In Debarking, a newly divorced man tries to keep his wits about him as the United States prepares to invade Iraq, and against this ominous moment, we see in all its irresistible hilarity and darkness the perils of divorce and what can follow in its wake. In Foes, a political argument goes grotesquely awry as the events of 9/11 unexpectedly manifest at a fund-raising dinner in Georgetown. In The Juniper Tree, a teacher, visited by the ghost of her recently deceased friend, is forced to sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' in a kind of nightmare reunion. And in Wings, we watch the unraveling of two once-hopeful musicians who neither held fast to their dreams nor struck out along other paths as Moore deftly depicts the intricacies of dead ends and the workings of regret. -- Gimlet-eyed social observation, the public and private absurdities of American life, dramatic irony, and enduring half-cracked love wend their way through each of these narratives in a heartrending mash-up of the tragic and the laugh-out-loud the hallmark of Lorrie Moore land.

Review:

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, March 2014: Here’s a reason Lorrie Moore is so beloved by her baby boomer brethren: she’s smart, she’s funny, her eye is even sharper than her tongue. In Bark, her latest collection of stories, all those qualities are well on display. “He had never been involved with the mentally ill before,” she writes of her mid-life anti-hero in the (sort-of) title story, "Debarking." "[B]ut he now felt more than ever that there should be strong international laws against them being too good looking.” Acerbic? Check. Knowing? Check. Says out loud on the page what we less talented, less observant mere mortals wish we could form so well in thought? Check. Check. Check. The only reason not to read these seven stories is that, perhaps, they’re just too accurate and perceptive about the way we live now--but then, why would you ever want to read stories that were anything else? --Sara Nelson

Descripción FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a literary moment and celebration - a new collection by one of America s most beloved and admired short story writers; her first in fifteen years, since Birds of America. In these eight masterful stories, Lorrie Moore, explores the passage of time, and summons up its inevitable sorrows and comic pitfalls. In Debarking , a newly divorced man tries to keep his wits about him as the US prepares to invade Iraq. In Foes , a political argument goes grotesquely awry as the events of 9/11 unexpectedly manifest at a fundraising dinner in Georgetown. In The Juniper Tree , a teacher, visited by the ghost of her recently deceased friend, is forced to sing The Star Spangled Banner in a kind of nightmare reunion. And in Wings , we watch the unraveling of two once-hopeful musicians, who neither held fast to their dreams, nor struck out along other paths. Gimlet-eyed social observation, the public and private absurdities of American life, dramatic irony, and enduring half-cracked love wend their way through each of these narratives, in Moore s characteristic style that is always tender, never sentimental and often heartbreakingly funny.
