ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Elle San Francisco Chronicle New Statesman Frieze The Irish Times Vulture 3:AM Magazine. Chosen by The Millions and Flavorwire as one of the most-anticipated books of 2016.

The very short stories of Diane Williams have been aptly called ?folk tales that hammer like a nail gun, and these 40 new ones are sharper than ever. They are unsettling, yes, frequently revelatory, and more often than not downright funny.

Not a single moment here is what you might expect. While there is immense pleasure to be found in Williamss spot-on observations about how we behave in our highest and lowest moments, the heart of the drama beats in the language of American short fictions grand master, whose originality, precision, and power bring the familiar into startling and enchanted relief.
