A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From Allan Gurganus, author of the beloved, bestselling Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All and winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, here are eleven masterful works of short fiction. First seen in The New, Yorker, Harper's, the Paris Review, Granta, and elsewhere, they are darkly comic stories and novellas about love and money among American WASPs, that majority outnumbered, outflanked, and somewhat out of love with itself.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:

"Mimicry is a powerful narrative asset, and Allan Gurganus practices it like a virtuoso.... The author's vocal repertoire encompasses salesmanese, African American funerary dithyrambs, post-debutante bridge-table chatter, and redneck macho boasting....I can't think of a nit to pick from these stories. They have variety, humor, profundity, and verbal dexterity."

-- Dennis Drabelle The Washington Post Book World

"Gurganus now widens his theme to examine America's often painful positioning between what we have destroyed or lost, and what we might still hope to recover....Each story is a gem."

-- John C. Hawley San Francisco Chronicle

"Elegant, mysterious and satisfying...[In these stories, I the very human limitations of the empowered of the earth are revealed."

-- Judith Freeman Los Angeles Times Book Review
