FICTION / General

This selection of David Constantine'?s best short fiction, named among Kirkus Reviews? Best Story Collections of 2015, spans the author's remarkable 30-year career. Known for their pristine emotional clarity, their spare but intensely evocative dialogue, and their fearless exposures of the heart in moments of defiance, change, resistance, flight, isolation, and redemption, these stories demonstrate Constantine's timeless appeal. Now completely sold out of its hardcover run, this attractively priced paperback edition will appeal to every lover of great literature.

David Constantine is an award-winning writer, poet, and translator. His debut North American novel, The Life-Writer, will be published in the fall of 2016.

Praise for In Another Country

"Revelatory."—THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Constantine's stories ache with concern for the retreating, vulnerable, sacred natural world."—NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW (EDITORS' CHOICE)

"[Constantine] has a remarkable ear for both poetic and common prose."—TORONTO STAR

"The diverse characters [of In Another Country] include ex-monks, shamed canons, prostitutes, squatters, successful businessmen, and university professors, but a common thread of silent suffering and dignity ties them all together ... A brilliant selection."—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, STARRED REVIEW
