    In her first book in more than a decade, Lorrie Moore turns to the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, on the insidiousness of racism, the blind-sidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love. As the United States begins gearing up for war in the Middle East, 20-year-old Tassie Keltin, the Midwestern daughter of a gentleman hill farmer - his 'Keltjin potatoes' are justifiably famous - has come to a university town as a college student, her brain on fire with Chaucer, Sylvia Plath, Simone de Beauvoir. A job as a family nanny draws her deep into each of their lives, while finding herself becoming more strange, turned in the direction of permanent change. 320p.

    “Heartbreaking. . . . Mordantly funny. . . . Takes us on a rare flight of self-transcendence. . . . Moments of recognition bring jolts like electric shocks.” —The New York Review of Books “Wonderful. . . . Masterful. . . . Profound. . . . Not a single false note.” —USA Today “[Moore] deftly paints with negative space, releasing tremendous poignancy. . . . A vibrant and nimble display of Moore’s signature wit.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Ms Moore’s writing glides. She describes the mundane with precision and grace. . . . Bark simultaneously honours and regrets the messiness of human relationships. Ms Moore is like one of her characters: ‘sternness in one eye and gentleness in the other.’” —The Economist “One of the finest short story writers in the country.” —Los Angeles Review of Books “[Moore’s] writing contains multitudes, mixed in exacting proportions, which is to say: this potpourri is utterly and totally unique. . . . There really is no one quite like her.” —The New Republic “Lorrie Moore still dazzles. . . . These powerfully, almost savagely, human stories shine with a spirit of playfulness and the logic of love.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

    Though the characters in these twelve stories are seen in such varied setting as Iowa, Ireland, Maryland, Louisiana and Italy, they are all afflicted with ennui, angst, and aimlessness. They can’t communicate or connect; they have no inner resources; they can’t focus; they can’t feel love. Moore empowers them with wit allowing their thoughts and conversation to sparkle with wordplay, sarcastic banter and idioms used with startling originality. No matter how chaotic their lives, their minds still operate at quip speed; the emotional impact of their inner desolation is expressed in gallows humor. A New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year. 291p.
