Like George Saunders, Karen Russell, and David Mitchell, he pulls from a variety of genres with equal facility, employing the fantastic not to escape from reality but instead to interrogate it in provocative, unexpected ways.

London awakes one morning to find itself besieged by a sky full of floating icebergs. Destroyed oil rigs, mysteriously reborn, clamber from the sea and onto the land, driven by an obscure but violent purpose. An anatomy student cuts open a cadaver to discover impossibly...

Three Lives

Gertrude Stein

Three Lives by Gertrude Stein

American writer Gertrude Stein was definitely decades ahead of her time. Injecting experimental and avant-garde elements into her work, she described her method as "literary cubism" -- an understandable goal for someone who was close friends with Picasso and many other important artists of the day. Although the collection Three Lives definitely pushes the literary envelope, the stories still manage to convey tender and engaging human portraits of three very different female protagonists.

Three Lives

Gertrude Stein

Three Lives by Gertrude SteinFirst published in 1909, Three Lives marks the beginning of an era of bold experimentation with literary form and language that has continued throughout our century. In these three stories, Gertrude Stein put into practice certain theories about prose composition that paralleled the ideas expressed in the art of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters. Her characters strike the reader as living in a world determined by an aesthetic rather than a social order. The nonlinear narrative structure of 'The Good Anna', for example, was inspired by the works of Cézanne. Stein's friendship with...

Three Continents: Stories and Essays

Chandan Sen

Three Continents: Stories and Essays by Chandan SenFrom the author: I find the small acts within my observation interesting enough to merit writing about. The little boy mending shoes by the roadside, the millionaire mill-owner who shows a rare form of kindness, birds who talk and beasts who don't find a place in my collection of vignettes. My questing eye has roamed over the sordid and the sublime and found humor and pathos in everyday situations. Both scoundrel and hero are depicted here. Yet, unlike the camera, which does not lie, I have slanted my writings to show dignity and goodness, honor and faith.

Whether from the perspective of the heart of an innocent child or a responsibility-laden adult, each piece tenderly reflects the stage of maturity about which it is written while running the gambit of natural human emotions with a refreshingly simplistic vulnerability. Truly...
