“A writer of seismic talent. Not since Robert Stone has a writer so examined the nature of disillusionment and the ways in which newfound hope can crack the cement of failed dreams.”
—Adam Johnson
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Orphan Master’s Son

“Beautiful, funny, fearless, exquisitely crafted and truly novelistic in scope. It’s so rare to read a story collection — let alone a debut — that is this big, ambitious and brilliantly realized. It’s clear we’re in the hands of a master storyteller — a writer with the emotional heft of Nicole Krauss and the penetrating wit of Philip Roth. This book isn’t simply powerful and important — it’s necessary.”
