Description

Pulitzer Prize winner Steven Millhauser draws comparisons to Nikolai Gogol, Italo Calvino and Gabriel Garcia Marquez for stories that blend the ordinary with the mystical. A collection of 16 tales transporting figures such as Rapunzel, Paul Bunyan, and Buddha to small-town America, Voices in the Night showcases Steven Millhauser at the height of his prowess. In "The Place," Millhauser tells the story of a town arguing over the fate of a scenic hilltop some believe has mystical powers. "Evanescent and bloody, obsessive and meditative, historical and futuristic, dystopian and romantic: Millhauser's brilliant work thrives in the fecund, mucky cracks of human contradictions."-Chicago Tribune
