Annotation:
Abundant, chameleonic, witty and wise, Jim Shepard's short stories in this collection are set in Australia, Chernobyl, and Britannia during the Roman Empire. He slips into voices and characters with the ease of a world-class actor let loose in a costume room.

Praise

"So varied in tone, theme, voice and setting are these stories that they might've been written by a hydra....Freakishly erudite, [Jim] Shepard writes fiction that glories in the sheer too-muchness of life--its superabundance of emotion, incident, and sensory delight....Virtuoso work." 08/01/2007

"Shepard is an impressive writer, but I wasn't impressed until I finished the book: I was too busy being enthralled....LIKE YOU'D UNDERSAND, ANYWAY serves as testament not only to Jim Shepard's talents but also to the power of the short story itself, forged from the world with a sharp eye and a careful ear, serving no agenda but literature's primary and oft-forgotten one: the delight of the reader." - Daniel Handler
