Hard to Admit and Harder to EscapeBook - 2007
In the grand tradition of Neapolitan ice cream, ZZ Top, and Cerberus, the tri-headed guardian of Hades, this set combines individual, short fiction collections by three talented practitioners of the short-short form. Manguso's Hard to Admit and Harder to Escape is a series of crystalline recollections of her childhood misadventures; Eggers' How the Water Feels to the Fishes brings a deadpan absurdism to the intimacy and vision of his earlier work; and Unferth's rollicking Minor Robberies unleashes a horde of off-kilter characters and their indelible misadventures. Each author's work comes in its own hardcover, foil-stamped volume, and the three volumes are housed in an elegant slipcase.
