Coming November 2018
The collected stories of one of the greatest masters and champions of the short story form, John Metcalf’s Finding Again the World considers the world through a very Metcalf-y lens. Sarcastic, wry, brilliant, and hilarious, Metcalf again proves the value of the story in a world drowning in too many novels.
