Tenderly, observantly, incisivley, Edith Pearlman caputres life on the page like few other writers - its dilemmas, its loves, it complexity. Spanning 40 years of writing from tsarist Russia to London during the Blitz, from Central America to the coast of Maine, from Jerusalem to the fictial suburb of Godolphin, Massachusettes- these astonishing stories show a writer of the most exquisitely turned prose, with sensibility all her own: imaginative, compassionate, funny and wise.
Edith Pearlman published her debut collection of stories in 1996, at age 60. Last year, she won the National Critics Cricle Award for Fiction for Binocular Vision. She has published over 250 works of short fiction in maagzines, literary journals, anthologies and online publications. Her work has won three O.Henry Prizes, the Drue Heinz Prize for Literature, and a Mary McCarthy Prize, among others.In 2011, Pearlman was the recipient of the PEN/Melamud Award, which puts her in the ranks of John Updike, Joyce Carol Oates and other luminaries.
