Summary
The definitive collection of stories--new and old--from Rick Bass, considered one of the most gifted practitioners of the short story, unsurpassed in his ability to perceive and portray the enduring truths of the human heart. To read his fiction has been said to make a person feel more alive--connected to "the brief longshot of having been chosen for the human experience," as one of his characters puts it. These pages reveal men and women living with passion and tenderness at the outer limits of the senses, each attempting to triumph against fate"--Adapted from publisher description
