Mr. and Mrs. Baby Deluxe Edition: And Other Stories
Back in print in this deluxe edition, the former Poet Laureate of the United States and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet's only collection of short fiction, now part of the Ecco Art of the Story series. Imagine a writer who combines Woody Allen s sense of exaggeration his ability to extrapolate situations to their funniest extremes with the perspective and self-consciously elegant language of John Updike. The stories in this first collection, originally printed in Vogue, The New Yorker, and Michigan Quarterly Review, vary widely. Yet several of them share a spirit of stubborn determination in the pursuit of idiosyncratic meanings of happiness. Author: Mark Strand. Paperback; 144 pages.
