Author(s): Harry Mathews
Available For The First Time In One Volume, The Very Best Of Mathews's Short Fiction; This expertly designed original paperback presents a comprehensive collection of internationally renowned poet and novelist Harry Mathews' short prose. From the hilarious 'The Broadcast,' in which the narrator learns from a radio program that everything he needs in life should fit into one sock, to 'Calibration of Latitude,' which follows Sir Joseph Pernican on a meandering and seemingly aimless but deeply moving journey, this is a long-awaited addition to Mathew's beloved and masterful canon.
Harry Mathews has written over a dozen books, including the novels Cigarettes and Tlooth, along with his collected essays, The Case of the Persevering Maltese. Mathews is a member of the Oulipo--France's longest-lived and most active literary group. He divides his time between Paris, Key West, and New York.
