Edith Pearlman's Binocular Vision are the collected stories of an award-winning author who has been compared to Alice Munro, John Updike and even Chekhov 'This book is a spectacular literary revelation... With Binocular Vision a new fictional planet, richly populated and suffused with warm lucidity, comes into view' -Peter Kemp, The Sunday Times 'Pearlman writes about the predicaments odd, wry, funny and painful of being human ... [Her] view of the world is large and compassionate, delivered through small, beautifully precise moments. Her characters inhabit terrain that all of us recognize, one defined by anxieties and longing, love and grief, loss and exultation. These quiet, elegant stories add something significant to the literary landscape.' - The New York Times Tenderly, observantly, incisively, Edith Pearlman captures life on the page like few other writers. She is a master of the short story, and this is a spectacular collection. Edith Pearlman, born in 1936, published her debut collection of stories in 1996, at age 60. In 2011, she won The National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction for Binocular Vision. She has published over 250 works of short fiction in magazines, literary journals, anthologies and online publications. Her work has won three O. Henry Prizes, the Drue Heinz Prize for Literature, and a Mary McCarthy Prize, among others. In 2011, Pearlman was also the recipient of the PEN/Malamud Award, which puts her in the ranks of luminaries like John Updike and Joyce Carol Oates. Her fans include T.C. Boyle, Ann Patchett and Chris Adrian

“A very different and marvellous good read.”

This is a book of short stories. The problem with short stories is that you just get interested in the characters and then they leave you. The problem with many of Edith Pearlman's characters created in these... More
