Dear Abigail and Other Stories (pre-order)
by Stephen Dixon
Stephen Dixon has long been considered one of America’s preeminent literary innovators. Dear Abigail, the companion to Dixon’s earlier collection Late Stories, continues the story of Philip Seidel as he recounts every detail of the early days of his marriage—as well as the traces of memories lost to time—rendering another heartbreaking examination of grief.
Praise for Dear Abigail and Other Stories:
“Dixon is a master of the minor moments, the dreams and the disappointments, that transfigure every one of us.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS (STARRED REVIEW)
“Stephen Dixon has somehow been overlooked as one of the masters of recording how a person thinks, how days go, what it feels like to be alive inside a brain. . . . He should be remembered as one of postmodern modernism’s greats.” —BLAKE BUTLER, VICE
