The Start of Something : The Selected Stories of Stuart Dybek Paperback / softback


'One of the most soulful writers in America, and a national treasure' George SaundersNineteen tales of growing up, wising up, and falling in love, spanning more than three decades of prize-winning work by a North American master of the short storyThe Start of Something is a visionary work following the lovelorn beatniks, hard-boiled gangsters and jaded academics of America, journeying through a haze of drugs, dreams and lucid memory.

Seductive and freewheeling, each story glittering with the found poetry of the street, this is the definitive introduction to a life's work by a writer who has re-enchanted short fiction with every new collection.
