Acerca de


"Rick Bass is a national treasure." "Carl Hiassen""

"Rick Bass puts his talent as a nature writer to terrific use...His ability to map the inner lives of his characters is equally impressive." "New York Times Book Review, on The Hermit's Story.""

"Rick Bass is one of the best writers of his generation." "George Plimpton""

Praise for "For A Little While"
""For a Little While" is nothing short of remarkable. In the powerful lyricism of his exquisitely wrought prose, Rick Bass conveys not only the ordinary thoughts and impulses of his characters, but also those moments of pure sensation-convincing in every physical, mental, and emotional detail-when the intensity of life exists at a pitch almost beyond language. Even amid the threat of annihilation, Bass finds the promise of redemption. Grace has always been the great, elusive subject of his short fiction, and the extraordinary, transcendent stories collected here pursue it in myriad and seamless ways."
"Joyce Carol Oates""

Praise for Rick Bass
"Rick Bass is a national treasure." "Carl Hiaasen""

"One of this country's most intelligent and sensitive short story writers." ""New York Times Book Review"""

"Extravagant . . . Writing of this quality creates a stillness in the mind."
""Time """

"A master craftsman." ""Los Angeles Times"""

"What's exhilarating about Rick Bass's stories is that they show every hallmark of 'the natural'-that lucid, free-flowing, particularly American talent whose voice we can hear in Twain, Fitzgerald, and Hemingway." ""Chicago Tribune"""

"A seasoned author in full possession of his art and craft." ""Denver Post"""
