    “These stories deal with relationships . . . lovers, spouses, friends, parents, offspring, siblings. We can relate to them. We root for them. We want them to win.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel   The stories in Above the Houses allow the reader to enjoy what the author has elsewhere called “a kind of ecology of consciousness: how to use well and not squander our stupendous human resources for insight.” The crises they describe—ranging from death, divorce, and murder to a torrential Midwestern rainstorm—provide a context for the author’s astonishing ability to capture subtle human feelings, whether those of old people, children, lovers, or the lonely.   Set in the heartland of America, each story, in its own extraordinary way, poses the dilemma of the father in the volume’s concluding story, “Rain,” when he asks “to be told why I care so much how I live if it is all to end anyway.” And each offers the answer he gets: “because it does not end.”

    From the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author of Brother, I'm Dying, a collection of vividly imagined stories about community, family, and love.Rich with hard-won wisdom and humanity, set in locales from Miami and Port-au-Prince to a small unnamed country in the Caribbean and beyond, Everything Inside is at once wide in scope and intimate, as it explores the forces that pull us together, or drive us apart, sometimes in the same searing instant.In these eight powerful, emotionally absorbing stories, a romance unexpectedly sparks between two wounded friends; a marriage ends for what seem like noble reasons, but with irreparable consequences; a young woman holds on to an impossible dream even as she fights for her survival; two lovers reunite after unimaginable tragedy, both for their country and in their lives; a baby's christening brings three generations of a family to a precarious dance between old and new; a man falls to his death in slow motion, reliving the defining moments of the life he is about to lose.This is the indelible work of a keen observer of the human heart — a master at her best.

    Seven short stories by the Prix Goncourt winner—“the most distinctive voice of his generation . . . master magician of the contemporary French novel” (The Washington Post).   France’s preeminent fiction writer, Jean Echenoz is celebrated for his ability to craft stories with such precision that readers are caught off guard by the intense emotion and imagination just beneath the placid surface of his writing. As Gary Indiana put it in his essay “Conjuror of St. Germain”, “Echenoz risks everything in his fiction, gambling on the prodigious blandishments of his voice to lure his readers into a maze of improbabilities and preposterous happenings.”  The Queen’s Caprice—seven stories available in English for the first time—reveals Echenoz at the height of his talents, taking readers on a journey across radically different landscapes. The title story explores a tiny corner of the French countryside; “Nelson” offers a brilliant miniaturist portrait of the hero of the Battle of Trafalgar; “In Babylon” sketches the ancient city of Mesopotamia, based on trace descriptions from Herodotus; and other stories visit the forests of England, the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris, Tampa Bay, and the interior of a submarine. Amid the thrill and allure of this voyage of words, “again and again we pause to savor the richness of Echenoz’s startling, crystalline observations” (Lydia Davis).   “[A] terrific sense of humor tinged with existential mischief.” —L’Express

    Edward Frederic Benson (1867 - 1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist, and short story writer, best known as the true master of the gothic occult story.The Horror-Horn tells the story of a skiing holiday in the shadow of the mysteriously named Ungeheuerhorn mountain. Literally the name translates as "Horror-Horn". It appears that a local legend has it that hideous and terrifying monsters live in caves high up on the mountain.These monsters are primitive creatures... possibly an early stage of evolution of human beings, but wild, savage, malevolent. Moreover, the legend has it that they violently rape any human, male or female who they can manage to catch.When the narrator of this story loses his way on the mountain as dusk is falling, he soon finds himself pursued by an abonimable female monster, bent on having her evil way with him.

    John Galt (1779-1839) was a Scottish novelist, entrepreneur, and political and social commentator.One night, a traveller is waiting for the young ferryman to return, as he is unable to take himself over the river, owing to a broken arm. While he waits, a young military recruit and a heavily pregnant woman arrive, arguing. They set off together on the ferry. The old ferryman's wife thinks she hears a shriek shortly afterwards, but the night is so stormy and black that they can see nothing. That night the traveller has strange and disturbing nightmares. Every year on the anniversary of this date, for seven years, he had further terrifying dreams, which he describes to a learned friend. Fourteen years from the incident at the ferry, a stranger is lodged with them, who looks strangely familiar. It is the young recruit from the black ferry...and what follows is bizarre and terrifying.
