Description

The first collection of short fiction from Jess Walter, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins, We Live in Water is a diverse suite of stories marked by the wry wit and generosity of spirit that has made him one of America's most talked-about writers. Stories in We Live in Water range from comic tales of love to social satire and suspenseful crime fiction. Traveling from hip Portland to once-hip Seattle to never-hip Spokane, to a condemned casino in Las Vegas and a bottomless lake in the dark woods of Idaho, this is a world of lost fathers and redemptive con men, of personal struggles and diminished dreams. In title story 'We Live in Water', a lawyer returns to his corrupt hometown to find his father, who disappeared 30 years earlier. In 'Thief,' a blue-collar worker turns unlikely detective to find out which of his kids is stealing from the family fund. 'Anything Helps' sees a homeless man try to raise money to buy his son the new Harry Potter book; and in 'Virgo,' a newspaper editor attempts to get back at his superstitious ex-girlfriend by screwing with her horoscope. Also included are 'Don't Eat Cat' and 'Statistical Abstract of My Hometown, Spokane, Washington,' both of which achieved cult status after their first publication online.
