When Ann Beattie began publishing short stories in The New Yorker in the mid-seventies, she emerged with a voice so original, and so uncannily precise in its assessment of her characters' drift and narcissism, that she was instantly celebrated as an oracle of her time. Subtle, wry, and unnerving, she is a master observer of the unraveling of the American family and also of the myriad small occurrences and affinities that unite us. Each Beattie story, says Margaret Atwood, is "like a fresh bulletin from the front: we snatch it up, eager to know what's happening out there on the edge of that shifting and dubious no-man's-land known as interpersonal relations." The New Yorker Stories is the perfect initiation for readers new to this iconic American writer and a glorious return for those who have known and loved her work for decades.
