The stolid landscape of Chicago suddenly turns dreamlike and otherworldly in Stuart Dybek's classic story collection. A child's collection of bottle caps becomes the tombstones of a graveyard. A lowly rightfielder's inexplicable death turns him into a martyr to baseball. Strains of Chopin floating down the tenement airshaft are transformed into a mysterious anthem of loss. Combining homely detail and heartbreakingly familiar voices with grand leaps of imagination, The Coast of Chicago is a masterpiece from one of America's most highly regarded writers.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Dybek's writing is masterful. Lines I read over ten years ago, when I first picked up this collection, still meander in my mind like favorite passages of music. Read anything of Dybek's you can get your hands on...you'll never be disappointed.
