Long considered one of the most gifted practitioners of the short story, Rick Bass is unsurpassed in his ability to perceive and portray the enduring truths of the human heart. To read his fiction is to feel more alive - connected, incandescently, to "the brief longshot of having been chosen for the human experience," as one of his characters puts it. Bass's lush and striking language draws us ineluctably into the lives of men and women living with passion and tenderness at the outer limits of the senses, each attempting to triumph against fate. These intricate stories - brimming with magic and wonder, filled with hard-won empathy, marbled throughout with astonishing imagery - have the power both to devastate and to uplift. Together they showcase "an American classic" (Newsweek) at his peak.
