Overview

Dreams of Molly by Jonathan Baumbach

A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Jonathan Baumbach's latest novel, Dreams of Molly, is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. A love story as only Baumbach can write, it is filled with the longings and lingerings, the sex and deprivation, the humor and heartache, and the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach's fiction from the start.

Jonathan Baumbach is the author of fourteen books of fiction, including You, or The Invention of Memory; On The Way To My Father's Funeral: New and Selected Stories; B, A Novel; D-Tours; Separate Hours; Chez Charlotte and Emily; The Life and Times of Major Fiction; Reruns; Babble; and A Man to Conjure With. He has also published over ninety stories published in such places as Esquire, Open City, and Boulevard.

Baumbach, co-founder of The Fiction Collective in 1973, the first fiction writers cooperative in America (it was reinvented as FC2 in 1988), has seen his work widely praised. His short stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, The PEN / O.Henry Prize, and The Best of Tri Quarterly. The New York Times Book Review referred to him in 2004 as "an underappreciated writer." He employs a masterfully dispassionate, fiercely intelligent narrative voice whose seeming objectivity is always a faltering front for secret passion and despair."
