    A collection of twelve disarmingly witty tales about the complexities of love and intimacy from “a storyteller of genius” (Evelyn Waugh).    “The sense of the author at play dominates” Graham Greene’s entertaining anthology as the masterful British author looks at love, lies, vanity, mortality, romantic obsessions, and seduction from a dozen sharply observed perspectives (The New York Times).   A bored faculty wife looking for a fling discovers something more illuminating than sex; a jaded writer who eavesdrops on a pair of hopeful lovers feels compelled to relieve them of their foolish ideals and ambitions; a widow and a divorcée commiserate in mourning for their lost men, only to rejoice in their freedom after two bottles of blanc de blancs; a young man devises a test of true love—to find a woman who won’t laugh at the absurd circumstances of his father’s death; and in the title story, an oblivious young bride honeymooning in Antibes encourages a friendship between a gay couple and her adventurous and handsome new husband.

    “With terse sentences that read like poetry, Schutt strips each scene of excess context and cuts to the heart of the moment….Schutt's haunting yet lyrical words linger long after the final page.”—Los Angeles Times
    
    
    
    Hailed by George Saunders as “a truly gifted writer,” with Pure Hollywood & Other Stories, Pulitzer Prize finalist and O Henry Prize winner Christine Schutt returns to the short story form that launched her acclaimed career and her inimitable style that John Ashbery once described as “pared down but rich, dense, fevered, exactly right and even eerily beautiful.” 
    
    
    
    In 11 captivating tales, Pure Hollywood brings us into private worlds of corrupt familial love, intimacy, longing, and danger. From an alcoholic widowed actress living in desert seclusion, to a young mother whose rejection of her child has terrible consequences, a newlywed couple who ignore the violent warnings of a painter burned by love, to an eerie portrait of erotic obsession, each story in Pure Hollywood is an imagistic snapshot of what it means to live and learn love and hurt.  
    
    
    
    In league with JD Salinger, Katherine Mansfield and Guy De Maupassant, in Pure Hollywood Schutt gives us sharply suspenseful and masterfully dark interior portraits of ordinary lives, infused with her signature observation and surprise. Timeless, incisive, and precise, these tales are a rush of blood to the head, portals through which we open our eyes and see the world anew.

    The second anthology in the annual series continues Catapult's landmark publishing partnership with PEN America and features the best debut short fiction published in the US and Canada each year. PEN America will award the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers prize of $2000 to 12 writers, and Catapult will publish the dozen stories in a gorgeously designed anthology. 
    
    Each yearly anthology's winners are selected by three high-profile judges; stories for the 2018 edition will be chosen by Jodi Angel (You Only Get Letters From Jail), Lesley Nneka Arimah (What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky; a National Book Award “5 Under 35” and winner of the 2017 Kirkus Prize), and Alexandra Kleeman (You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine).
     
    Unique among comparative titles, each story in the PEN anthology is framed by an introduction by the publication's editor explaining why they nominated the story for the prize, giving writers who aspire to be published insight into the editors' thought processes.
    
    The first volume received well-deserved critical praise, and stories from the anthology were featured in Levar Burton Reads, Electric Literature, and The Rumpus
    
    The PEN America/Catapult anthology is aspirational and inspirational for anyone working hard to be a writer, and a rare opportunity for debut short fiction writers to reach a wider audience; it appeals to MFA students, aspiring writers, and other lovers of literary fiction. 
    
    This anthology is not only a bold endorsement of fresh, raw, and risky new voices, but also a thoughtfully selected, deliberately arranged compendium for those wanting to know what's next in the literary world. 
    
    In a time where keeping up with everything published online and in print feels impossible, this anthology champions and amplifies the essential contributions literary magazines make to the literary ecosystem and provides a unique survey of stories from the most important and beloved journals on the continent. 
    
    The support network, awareness of, and enthusiasm for this book will continue to grow each year; the support 2018 authors, journals, and editors will double the existing base of 2017 contributors
