    The true story of the author's accident, in which he was at the wheel when a girl on a bicycle suddenly veered - seemingly without a moment's notice or reason - and he hit and killed her. The account rendered here - of the accident, of the author's effort to bury the accident within himself - describes, or rather, inscribes, the beginning of a different, darker life for the author. Strauss explores his startling past - collision, funeral, the queasy drama of a high-stakes court case - and what starts as a personal tale of a tragic event opens into the story of how to live with a very hard fact: we can try our human best in the crucial, critical, irreversible moment, and it might not be good enough. The past is as cruel as its future; facing life ever more traumatic than death when one is behind the wheel - and, ultimately, blameless - in a fatal accident. 205p.

    National Book Critics Circle Award Winner. Acclaimed novelist Darin Strauss examines the fart-reaching consequences of the tragic moment that has shadowed his whole life. In his last month of high school, he was behind the wheel of his dad’s Oldsmobile, driving with friends, heading off to play miniature golf. Then: a classmate swerved in front of his car. The collision resulted in her death. With piercing insight and stark prose, Strauss leads readers on a deeply personal, immediate, and emotional journey – graduating high school, going away to college, starting his writing career, falling in love with his future wife, becoming a father. Along the way he gives loss an indelibly hard look, not to mention guilt, maturity and accountability. 207p.

    "Like most great comedy," writes Darin Strauss in his Introduction, "Mr. Beluncle makes sport of the Stuffed Shirt, the Hypocritical Pious Gentleman, and the Tyrant, as well as the Big Spender - and all these descriptions fit a single character: Mr. Beluncle himself." One of V. S. Pritchett's most enduring characters, Mr. Beluncle is narcissistic, sanctimonious, and self-indulgent, yet despite these flaws he is undeniably compelling. Readers who follow this quirky British furniture salesman on his seemingly ordinary escapades - shopping for ridiculously expensive houses, attending services at his peculiar church, presiding over a tumultuous family meal - are in for a delightful and disquieting ride.
