Following the publication of the widely acclaimed novel Seven Years, comes a trove of stories from the Swiss master Peter Stamm. They all possess the traits that have built Stamm's reputation: The directness of the prose, the deceptive surface simplicity of the narratives, and deep psychological insight into the existential dilemmas of contemporary life. Stamm does not waste a word, nor does he spare the listener's feelings. These stories are a superb introduction to his work and a gift for all those who have come to regard his fiction as a precise rendering of the contemporary human psyche.
