Abstract:

A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Jonathan Baumbach has made another wonderful addition to his oeuvre with his latest collection, Flight of Brothers. The stories within are filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache, as well as the New York nuances, that have driven Baumbach & rsquo;s fiction from the start. & ldquo;With prose that is Kafa-esque, side-splitting, and existentially focused, this collection announced Baumbach as a writer of the bravest, most talented philosophical fiction one can hope to find & mdash;and also the most enjoyable. Fans of Joy Williams will swoon over the unstoppable dry-rub of fatally true humor. I couldn & rsquo;t put it down. & rdquo; & mdash;Alissa NuttingJonathan Baumbach is the author of fourteen books of fiction, including You, or The Invention of Memory; On the Way to My Father & rsquo;s Funeral: New and Selected Stories; B: A Novel; D-Tours; Separate Hours; Chez Charlotte and Emily; The Life and Times of Major Fiction; Reruns; Babble; and A Man to Conjure With. He has also published over ninety stories in such places as Esquire, Open City, and Boulevard. Baumbach, cofounder of the Fiction Collective in 1973, the first fiction writers cooperative in America, has seen his work widely praised. His short stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Best of TriQuarterly. The New York Times Book Review referred to him in 2004 as & ldquo;an underappreciated writer. He employs a masterfully dispassionate, fiercely intelligent narrative voice whose seeming objectivity is always a faltering front for secret passion and despair. & rdquo.
