Nota del editor

Wonderfully weird short stories…
This collection of short stories inhabited by connected characters and interlocking plots reads like a novel. The stories are modern and a little bit surreal. Lydia Millet’s writing is elegantly sparse, while witty. She manages to nail the tricky balance of being smart without being pretentious — while being wonderfully weird.

Descripción

In her first collection since the Pulitzer Prize finalist Love in Infant Monkeys, Lydia Millet presents a web of stories that explore what it means to be home. A real-estate broker is the first character and moral center of a larger narrative about a fractured family reconnecting in unexpected ways. Warm romantic relationships, shocking tragedy, and a satisfying plot are infused, as usual, with Millet's blistering wit, dazzling intellect, and sometimes surreal touch.

Fight No More introduces an eclectic cast: strong-minded female narrators beset by hapless male relations, myopic business people contending with unexpected setbacks, and beastly men doing beastly things. Fresh off the critical triumph of Sweet Lamb of Heaven, which was longlisted for the National Book Award, Millet is pioneering a new kind of satire that's hilariously brutal in its depiction of modern American life, while also being compassionate toward those who are caught up in its tidal forces.
