Présentation de l'éditeur :

From Jess Walter, the bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins, comes We Live in Water - a darkly funny, utterly compelling collection of stories about the American family.We Live in Water brings to vivid life a world of lost fathers and redemptive con men, of personal struggles and diminished dreams, a world marked by the wry wit and generosity of spirit that has made Jess Walter one of America's most talked-about writers. In 'Thief', a blue-collar worker turns unlikely detective to find out which of his kids is stealing from the family vacation fund. In 'We Live in Water', a lawyer returns to a corrupt North Idaho town to find the father who disappeared thirty years earlier. In 'Anything Helps', a homeless man has to 'go to cardboard' to raise enough money to buy his son the new Harry Potter book. In 'Virgo', a local newspaper editor tries to get back at his superstitious ex-girlfriend by screwing with her horoscope. The final story transforms slyly from a portrait of Walter's hometown into a moving contemplation of our times.'A ridiculously talented writer' The New York Times'One of my favourite young American writers' Nick Hornby'Darkly funny, sneakily sad, these stories are very, very good' Publisher's Weekly'A witty and sobering snapshot of recession-era America' Kirkus

Revue de presse :

These stories are very, very good. If you like to read, you'll like this book ( Publishers Weekly)

A witty and sobering snapshot of recession-era America ( Kirkus Reviews)

Wildly entertaining and thought-provoking ( Booklist)

A genius of the modern American movement ( Philadelphia Inquirer)

Jess Walter has impressive command of the short story...Since 13 stories should be plenty for a collection, maybe the best compliment we might pay the author is to object that this book is too short (Lionel Shriver Financial Times)

A more expansive, wittier Raymond Carver ( Metro)

One for the hols ( Sunday Times Style)

Clever, original and a little dark ( Grazia)

There's no sudden resolution, but there's enough wit to help you get through the messy bits ( Shortlist)

A collection of punchy stories . . . Sold and sold ( Esquire)

Darkly amusing . . . Suffused with caustic wit, quirky descriptions and sharp details. We Live In Water never falls short of being highly engaging ( Sunday Times)
