We Others: New & Selected Stories

?Every reader knows of writers who are like secrets one wants to keep, and whose books one wants to tell the world about. Millhauser is mine.? ?David Rollow, Boston Sunday Globe From the Pulitzer Prize?winning author: the essential stories across three decades that showcase his indomitable imagination. Steven Millhauser?s fiction has consistently, and to dazzling effect, dissolved the boundaries between reality and fantasy, waking life and dreams, the past and the future, darkness and light, love and lust. The stories gathered here unfurl in settings as disparate as nineteenth-century Vienna, a contemporary Connecticut town, the corridors of a monstrous museum, and Thomas Edison?s laboratory, and they are inhabited by a wide-ranging cast of characters, including a knife thrower and teenage boys, ghosts and a cartoon cat and mouse. But all of the stories are united in their unfailing power to surprise and enchant. From the earliest to the stunning, previously unpublished novella-length title story?in which a man who is dead, but not quite gone, reaches out to two lonely women?Millhauser in this magnificent collection carves out ever more deeply his wondrous place in the American literary canon.*This book may have remainder mark*
