Synopsis

“A restlessly inventive collection, as the best story collections so often are—comic and tender, ironic and earnest, deadpan and passionate. A distinctive new voice, from a distinctive new press.”—Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl

Includes “Wait,” a Best American Short Stories 2007 inclusion.
