About the product
A short-story collection from one of America?s brightest young talents. In one of these intensely imaginative stories a young woman?s furniture walks out on her. In another, the narrator feels compelled to deliver a takeout order that has incorrectly been phoned in to her. In a third, the petty details of a property transaction illuminate the complicated dependences and loves of a family. Following spiralling paths towards utterly logical, entirely absurd conclusions, Galchen?s creations occupy a dreamlike dimension, where time is fluid and identities are best defined by the qualities they lack. The tales in this groundbreaking collection are secretly in conversation with canonical stories, allowing the reader the pleasure of discovering familiar favourites in new guises. Here ?The Lost Order? covertly recapitulates James Thurber?s ?The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?, while ?The Region of Unlikeness? playfully mirrors Jorge Luis Borges?s ?The Aleph?.
