Description
"Bass's fiction takes us to the borders of civilization, where we glimpse an untamed world of myth and mystery" ( Entertainment Weekly ). In this "moving and self-assured collection" of short fiction, enormous pigs charge through the streets and root under houses; a woman runs up and down mountains; children don wolf masks to chase a boy through the woods; and a man remembers his youth in the Texas hill country, when he joined in his uncle's raucous escapades ( Publishers Weekly , starred review). Here, the award-winning author of Platte River and other acclaimed works, renowned for his insightful portrayals of people and their interactions with the natural world, "expresses his profound love of the wild. His sense of the magnificent and bewildering complexity of life infuses each of the haunting short stories in this strong collection" ( Booklist ).

Description
Rick Bass's recent trio of novellas, Platte River, was hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a major step in [his] climb to the top echelon of American fiction writers." Now, with this dazzling new collection, Bass establishes himself as a master of the short story. These tales embrace vibrant images of human life and exuberant explorations of the natural world. In the title story, a man remembers his youth in the Texas hill country when he participated in his uncle's raucous escapades, which have taken new shape and meaning by what has happened since. Although his work is grounded in reality, Bass's stories acquire fantastic proportions: enormous pigs charge through the streets and root beneath houses; a narrator meets a woman who runs up and down mountains; two wild boys converge deep in the woods to joust. Each of these ten stories is a mythical narrative celebrating the tentative, moving relationship between people and their environment.
