Description
In this singular collection, John Edgar Wideman, the acclaimed author of -- "JB & FD""Maps and Ledgers""Williamsburg Bridge" "My Dead" Navigating an extraordinary range of subject and tone, Wideman challenges the boundaries of traditional forms, and delivers unforgettable, immersive narratives that touch the very core of what it means to be alive. An extended meditation on family, history, and loss, American Histories weaves together historical fact, philosophical wisdom, and deeply personal vignettes. More than the sum of its parts, this is Wideman at his best--emotionally precise and intellectually stimulating--an extraordinary collection by a master.
