This collection of Gordon Lish's short stories demonstrates the stinging power and urgency of his writing and the strength and vitality of the American short story. Eloquent, sceptical, and humorous, Lish creates a variety of characters who ponder the intensity and extremes of life. Of particular interest is the Salinger story, For Rupert — with No Promises which when first published in Esquire was believed to be the work of John Updike or J.D. Salinger.
