Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
The stories of Kenneth Burke (1897–1993) were unlike any other fiction of the 1920s. Not for him the stripped-down language of Hemingway or the topical satire of Fitzgerald; instead he constructed rhetorically gorgeous essay-stories that anticipated (by 40 years) the narrative techniques of Calvino, Gass, and Nicholson Baker. Here & Elsewhere gathers, for the first time, all of Burke's fiction: 23 short stories and Towards a Better Life (1932), which Denis Donoghue calls "one of my favorite novels, full of sentences so luminous that I could be easily persuaded that style is everything."
