Henri Duchemin and His Shadows
Emmanuel Bove
+ Description

A perfect introduction to Emmanuel Bove, the twentieth-century French poet of the flophouse and the dive who, as Samuel Beckett remarked, possessed an unparalleled "instinct for the essential detail." Henri Duchemin and His Shadows brims with characters who call to mind Herman Melville’s Bartleby, Robert Walser’s “little men,” and Jean Rhys’s lost women.

book image Dear Illusion: Collected Stories
Dear Illusion: Collected Stories
Kingsley Amis
+ Description

Science fiction, the spy story, the ghost story—all were grist for Amis’s mill, and this original collection shows him at his adventurous best. “[Amis’s stories] are, in the most positive sense, a mixed bag. They are written by a man with plenty of interests in life, a large capacity for changing his mind and containing contrasting, even conflicting opinions within himself. The reader genuinely never knows what is coming next.”—The Spectator

book image The Prank: The Best of Young Chekhov
Anton Chekhov
+ Description

In 1880, the young Anton Chekhov set out to edit and publish what he considered his best work. The collection, which was to include illustrations by his brother Nikolay, was censored and never appeared as originally conceived—until now. The Prank is the first appearance of this collection in any language and includes two stories never before published in English as well as Nikolay’s drawings.

Shadows of Carcosa
D. Thin

book image A Schoolboy's Diary and Other Stories
Schoolboy's Diary and Other Stories
Robert Walser
+ Description

Walser is the champion of the small, the insignificant, and the overlooked. This original collection shows just how much breadth, though, he brought to his characteristic subject, ranging from some of his very first works, the "Fritz Kocher" sequence to tales of the Swiss countryside, love triangles, and memoirs of his WWI–era military service.

book image The Complete Fiction
Complete Fiction of Francis Wyndham
Francis Wyndham
+ Description

Wyndham is one of Britain's greatest living story writers, and a legendary editor. "He brings to his work an eye for the absolutely essential and a haunting sense of what lives are made up of—not the peaks and troughs...but the more elusive continuities and absences, ephemeral obsessions, a sense of permanently deferred expectation and hilarious consequences."—Interview
