The coast of Chicago by Stuart Dybek( Book )

"The stolid landscape of Chicago suddenly turns dreamlike and otherworldly in Stuart Dybek's classic story collection. A child's collection of bottle caps becomes the tombstones of a graveyard. A lowly rightfielder's inexplicable death turns him into a martyr to baseball. Strains of Chopin floating down the tenement airshaft are transformed into a mysterious anthem of loss. Combining homely detail and heartbreakingly familiar voices with grand leaps of imagination, The Coast of Chicago is a masterpiece from one of America's most highly regarded writers."--Publisher's description
Streets in their own ink by Stuart Dybek( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 611 libraries worldwide
"In his second book of poems, Stuart Dybek finds vitality in the same imagery that animates his works of fiction. These poems map the internal geographies of characters who inhabit severe and often savage city streets, finding there a tension that transfigures past and present, memory and fantasy, sin and sanctity, nostalgia and the need to forget."--Jacket
Childhood and other neighborhoods by Stuart Dybek( Book )
13 editions published between 1980 and 2003 in English and held by 571 libraries worldwide
"In Stuart Dybek's Chicago, wonder lurks in unexpected places - in garbage-strewn alleys, gloomy basement apartments, abandoned rooms at the top of rickety stairs periodically rumbled by passing el trains. Transformed through the wide eyes of Dybek's adolescent heroes, these urban backwaters become exotic landscapes of fear-filled possibility, of dreams not yet turned to nightmares. Chronicling what happens when Old World faith meets the dark side of the American dream, Dybek's poignant stories of coming of age Chicago alternately appall, amaze, and just simply entertain."--Jacket

At the same time, other stories depict grown men grasping at this very same idea. Faith, loss, and landscape all figure prominently in the collection.
