Description

"A mixtape of variations and a fugue on time from a postmodern master.... Familiar tales and conventional genres are made new, tinged with shuddering wonder and titillating humor." —Yu-Yun Hsieh, The New York Times Book Review


Robert Coover has been playing by his own rules for more than half a century, earning the 1987 Rea Award for the Short Story as "a writer who has managed, willfully and even perversely, to remain his own man while offering his generous vision and versions of America." Here, in this selection of his best stories, you will find an invisible man tragically obsessed by an invisible woman; a cartoon man in a cartoon car who runs over a real man who is arrested by a real policeman with cartoon eyes; a stick man who reinvents the universe. While invading the dreams and nightmares of others, Coover cuts to the core of how realism works.
