Sinopsis: These eight new stories from the celebrated novelist and short-story writer Nathan Englander display a gifted young author grappling with the great questions of modern life, with a command of language and the imagination that place Englander at the very forefront of contemporary American fiction.
The title story, inspired by Raymond Carver?s masterpiece, is a provocative portrait of two marriages in which the Holocaust is played out as a devastating parlor game. In the outlandishly dark ?Camp Sundown? vigilante justice is undertaken by a group of geriatric campers in a bucolic summer enclave. ?Free Fruit for Young Widows? is a small, sharp study in evil, lovingly told by a father to a son. ?Sister Hills? chronicles the history of Israel?s settlements from the eve of the Yom Kippur War through the present, a political fable constructed around the tale of two mothers who strike a terrible bargain to save a child. Marking a return to two of Englander?s classic themes, ?Peep Show? and ?How We Avenged the Blums? wrestle with sexual longing and ingenuity in the face of adversity and peril. And ?Everything I Know About My Family on My Mother?s Side? is suffused with an intimacy and tenderness that break new ground for a writer who seems constantly to be expanding the parameters of what he can achieve in the short form.
Beautiful and courageous, funny and achingly sad, Englander?s work is a revelation.
