All Gone 18 Short Stories by Stephen Dixon
  

Synopsis

All Gone 18 Short Stories by Stephen Dixon

A collection of 18 short stories by a very skillful storyteller (whose) grasp of the life of ordinary American city dwellers is such that he can shape it dramatically to meet the demands of his far from ordinary imagination ( Times Literary Supplement ).

Reviews

Stephen Dixon's eighth volume of stories is an almanac of incidents in which life's semblance of fairness goes haywire.. The best of these pieces are so skillful that when every one of them reaches its moment of surreal implausibility, we assume that Mr. Dixon has placed the moment there on purpose, to test the irresistibility of the nightmare logic that's at work. * New York Times Book Review *
