The Stories of Richard Bausch (Paperback)
A 2004 PEN/Malamud Award winner, this collection celebrates the work of American artist Richard Bausch -- a writer the New York Times calls "a master of the short story." By turns tender, raw, heartbreaking, and riotously funny, the many voices of this definitive forty-two-story collection (seven of which appear here for the first time) defy expectation, attest to Bausch's remarkable range and versatility, and affirm his place alongside such acclaimed story writers as John Cheever, Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, and Grace Paley.
About the Author
Richard Bausch is the author of twelve novels, including In the Night Season, Hello to the Cannibals, and Before, During, After. He has also written eight collections of short stories, among them a Modern Library edition of selected stories, The Stories of Richard Bausch, and most recently, Something is Out There. In 2012, he won the prestigious Rea Award for the Short Story. Bausch teaches creative writing at Chapman University.
