This publication is a literary event that marks the first time all of Purdy's short stories - 56 in number, including seven drawn from his unpublished archives - have been collected in a single volume. As prolific as he was unclassifiable, Purdy who died in 2009 was considered one of the most underappreciated writers in America in the 20th century. Purdy's gift for capturing the despair in people's lives is abundantly present in this collection. A wife's disdain for her husband is exemplified in her lack of confidence that he can change a refrigerator's lightbulb, in »Man and Wife«. The doctor of »Ruthanna Elder«, who has delivered more than 2,000 babies, attributes his insomnia to too meticulous a memory of the subsequent lives they led, which weighed on him.
