All Gone 18 Short Stories

by Stephen Dixon

Part of the Johns Hopkins: Poetry and Fiction Series

All Gone 18 Short Stories Synopsis

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 ).

All Gone 18 Short Stories Press 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 *
