Every reader knows of writers who are like secrets one wants to keep and whose books one wants to tell the world about Millhauser is mine br David Rollow i Boston Sunday Globe br i br From the Pulitzer Prize winning author the essential stories across three decades that showcase his indomitable imagination br Steven Millhauser s fiction has consistently and to dazzling effect dissolved the boundaries between reality and fantasy waking life and dreams the past and the future darkness and light love and lust The stories gathered here unfurl in settings as disparate as nineteenth century Vienna a contemporary Connecticut town the corridors of a monstrous museum and Thomas Edison s laboratory and they are inhabited by a wide ranging cast of characters including a knife thrower and teenage boys ghosts and a cartoon cat and mouse But all of the stories are united in their unfailing power to surprise and enchant From the earliest to the stunning previously unpublished novella length title story in which a man who is dead but not quite gone reaches out to two lonely women Millhauser in this magnificent collection carves out ever more deeply his wondrous place in the American literary canon, Cartoons that draw their creator into another world demonic paintings that exert a sinister influence on our own Fairy tales that express the secret losses and anxieties of their tellers These are the elements that Steven Millhauser employs to such marvelous and often disquieting effect in b Little Kingdoms b a collection whose three novellas suggest magical companion pieces to his acclaimed longer fictions br br In The Little Kingdom of J Franklin Payne a gentle eccentric constructs an elaborate alternate universe that is all the more appealing for being transparently unreal The Princess the Dwarf and the Dungeon is at once a gothic tale of nightmarish jealousy and a meditation on the human need for exaltation and horror And Catalogue of the Exhibition introduces us to the oeuvre of Edmund Moorash a Romantic painter who might have been imagined by Nabokov or Poe Exuberantly inventive as mysterious as dreams these novellas will delight mesmerize and transport anyone who reads them, The Barnum Museum is a combination waxworks masked ball and circus sideshow masquerading as a collection of short stories Within its pages note such sights as a study of the motives and strategies used by the participants in the game of Clue including the seduction of Miss Scarlet by Colonel Mustard the Barnum Museum a fantastic monstrous landmark so compelling that an entire town finds its citizens gradually and inexorably disappearing into it a bored dilettante who constructs an imaginary woman and loses her to an imaginary man and a legendary magician so skilled at sleight of hand that he is pursued by police for the crime of erasing the line between the real and the conjured, No description available
