about this item

"John Metcalf comes as close to the baffling, painful comedy of human experience as a writer can get."?Alice Munro

Set in Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, and Ottawa, the stories in this collection span the life of writer Robert Ford and his wife Sheila. Playing with various forms of comedy throughout, Metcalf paints a portrait of twentieth-century literary life with levity, satire, and unsuspecting moments of emotional depth.

John Metcalf is the author of more than a dozen works of fiction and nonfiction, including Standing Stones: Selected Stories, ******, Going Down Slow, and Kicking Against the ******.
