A striking short story collection from "one of the most unique and imaginative writers of his generation" (USA Today)
Welcome to the many and fascinating worlds of Jonathan Lethem's striking story collection: A dead man extends his stay on Earth in order to support his family, only to suffer periodic out-of-body sojourns in Hell; basketball players wear suits that lend them the skills of old-time stars like Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain; a couple invites the avatars of all their old lovers to their engagement party as a last hurrah; and every time a man takes a lover, her world begins to unwind, until she loses her place in it completely.
In these and other stories in this collection, Jonathan Lethem, author of The Arrest and The Fortress of Solitude, draws the reader ever more deeply into his strange, unforgettable world—a trip from which there may be no easy return.
Jonathan Lethem is the bestselling author of twelve novels, including The Arrest, The Feral Detective, The Fortress of Solitude, and Motherless Brooklyn, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. He currently teaches creative writing at Pomona College in California.
