Summary
"These eleven stories by Joshua Ferris, many of which were first published in The New Yorker, are at once thrilling, strange, and comic. The modern tribulations of marriage, ambition, and the fear of missing out as the temptations flow like wine and the minutes of life tick down are explored with the characteristic wit and insight that have made Ferris one of our most critically acclaimed novelists."
Summary
An anthology of short stories includes pieces previous published in The New Yorker and Best American Short Stories and follows the efforts of protagonists searching for answers in the wake of surprise, violent or otherwise life-changing moments
