Product Overview

With his five previous books of fiction, Charles Baxter established himself as a contemporary literary master, in the traditions of Raymond Carver, William Maxwell, and Alice Munro. This radiant new collection confirms Baxter's ability to revel in the surfaces of seemingly ordinary lives while uncovering their bedrock of passion, madness, levity and grief.

Praise
"Baxter's well-written narratives are distinguished by...the odd revelation in an apparently ordinary life..."
"Readers who know Baxter for his emotive but subtle portrayal of relationships will find 'Believers' delightful and surprising."
"[T]his collection of seven stories and a novella will remind us that [Baxter] is an exemplary writer because he works in persuasive solidities, in what is actual....'Believers' is also a source of simply gorgeous prose.....[E]very page that Baxter writes is such a source, as is his every story a lesson in observation, feeling and wit."
