After nearly 40 years of his distinctive, sometimes electrifying fiction, it’s fair to say that Bausch has stayed open for business through all kinds of circumstances and conditions, that he’s been able to keep the lights on and burning bright.

Synopsis

In these fourteen indelible stories, Richard Bausch once again proves himself a modern master.

From the prize-winning novelist and universally acclaimed short story writer ("Richard Bausch is a master of the short story" --The New York Times Book Review), thirteen unforgettable tales that showcase his electrifying artistry.
   Bausch plumbs the depths of familial and marital estrangement, the violence of suicide and despair, the gulfs between friends and lovers, the complexities of divorce and infidelity, the fragility and impermanence of love. Wherever he casts his gaze, he illuminates the darkest corners of human experience with the bright light of wisdom and compassion, finding grace and redemption amidst sorrow and regret. Bausch's stories are simply extraordinary.
