A FRANK O'CONNOR AWARD-winning, simply stunning short-story collection by one of America's most critically acclaimed young writers.

From the up-and-coming young American writer who has contributed to McSweeney's and written for THE NEW YORKER comes a masterful collection of short stories that has already received rave reviews from many of the most prominent writers working today. Some of the stories are comic masterpieces, some embody as dark a vision of the universe as you are likely to encounter, and all of them showcase a writer grappling with the great questions of modern life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
few literary works have better demonstrated their veracity lately than this glorious collection -- Pankaj Mishra * FINANCIAL TIMES *
Some of these stories are comic masterpieces, some embody as dark a vision of the universe as you are likely to encounter and all of them showcase a writer grappling with the great questions of modern life. * GRANTA *
Englander has written a fine collection, as intricately patterned across its length as a novel, although its stories are set in various decades and locations... a book of cautious, crafted, crafty stories that catch you off guard again and again. * THE SUNDAY TIMES *
This collection of short stories is covered with enthusiastic quotes from American literati. "This," you may think, "is either going to be fantastic or hyped nonsense." Thankfully, it's the former. * EMERALD STREET *
A remarkable collection * THE GUARDIAN *
The titular story - a twist on Raymond Carver's, of a similar name - jumps from brilliant Woody Allen-esque dialogue and comedy to darkness. * THE INDEPENDENT *
Englander deals with powerful questions of morality, history and vengeance. * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH *
His stories are moving and thought-provoking, pwerful and hilarious by turns. * NEWBOOKS magazine *
An amusing and moving collection. * THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST *
This collection by one of America's best short-story writers displays his inimitable capacity to shock, sadden and simultaneously entertain in his explorations of Jewish history and politics. * THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH SEVEN Magazine *
remarkable precision, agility and depth * BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH *

“What DO we talk about?”

I'm not exactly sure what I thought I was getting with this book. The title intrigued me, which I usually take as a good sign, however, it was not as 'unputdownable' as I have found with other short... More

“Amazing”

This is probably the most amazing collection of short stories that I've ever read. I don't know if the stories are true or fictionalised, but I came away from each one imagining that they could well have... More

“A good collection of books”

This was a good collection of short stories. The underlying theme in this is about Jews but even for a non believer I don’t think this affects the reading of the book. Some of the stories like, The Reader are quite... More
