Zwanzig Erzählungen von einer ungekrönten Königin des Genres. Edith Pearlman ist eine genaue Beobachterin menschlicher Beziehungen und eine Meisterin darin, komplexe Gefühle und uneindeutige Situationen zu schildern. Ihre Sprache ist von zurückhaltender Virtuosität, ihre Geschichten sind von jener schlichten Größe, wie sie Klassikern zu eigen ist. Eine literarische Entdeckung.

Et forment un réseau : personnages d’une même famille, scènes de vie contemporaine, à los angeles pêche, au cimetière, chez son psy, œuvres abstraites dans une galerie d’art, vaisseaux sanguins irriguant le cerveau.
