About this product
- DescriptionWinner of the 2002 Spokane Prize for Fiction the stories in Jonathan Penner's This Is My Voice live on paradox. They are seriously funny and hilariously sad. The characters' overwhelming regularity, their complete and convincing familiarity, is the device by which they become almost unspeakably odd: as though Penner had somehow become both Henry James and Donald Barthelme. In this marvellous collection of fiction, he brings us people of all ages and social circumstances and places them, often, outside of their accustomed contexts so that we see them, as they suddenly see themselves, with stunning vividness. Jonathan Penner is the author of the vels Going Blind , Natural Order , and The Intelligent Traveler's Guide to Chiribosco and his previous collection of stories, Private Parties , which won the Drue Heinz Literature Prize.
