ECKLEBURG BOOK CLUB | Late Stories by Stephen Dixon

The interlinked tales in this collection detail the excursions of an aging narrator navigating the amorphous landscape of grief in a series of tender and often waggishly elliptical digressions. Described by Jonathan Lethem as “one of the great secret masters” of contemporary American literature, Stephen Dixon is at the height of his form in these uncanny and virtuoso fictions.

What People Are Saying about Late Stories

“Masterful. [Dixon] considers his health, his sociability, his children, and his career in the fading light of his wife’s memory.” —Foreword Reviews

“Why isn’t Dixon a household name? […] His writing, which is plainspoken and deceptively straightforward, is the sort that sticks with you, because it cuts to the uncertainty of life […] Dixon is a master of the minor moments, the dreams and the disappointments, that transfigure every one of us.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Late Stories is a fantastic mourning, fantastically written.” —The Paris Review
