On the Way to My Father's Funeral: New and Selected Stories
Jonathan BaumbachISBN: 0972336338;
Book DescriptionHere are thirteen new stories and Baumbach's selected, which have appeared in such diverse compilations as Full Court: A Literary Anthology of Basketball, On the Couch: Great American Stories About Therapy, Transgressions: The Iowa Anthology of Innovative Fiction, Byrne's Book of Great Pool Stories, Show Me a Hero: Great Contemporary Stories about Sports, The Best American Short Stories, and The O. Henry Prize Stories--collected together for the first time. Whether they star a mild-mannered psychologist with a fondness for female patients or a King Kong-like giant ape with a human-sized penis or a female patient with a fondness for mild-mannered psychologists, Baumbach consistently reinvents traditional character-type and the traditional story.
