Following his renowned The Coast of Chicago and Childhood, story writer Stuart Dybek returns with eleven masterful and masterfully linked stories about Chicago's fabled and harrowing South Side. United, they comprise the story of Perry Katzek and his widening, endearing clan. Through these streets walk butchers, hitmen, mothers and factory workers, boys turned men and men turned to urban myth. I Sailed With Magellan solidifies Dybek's standing as one of our finest chroniclers of urban America.

Praise for I Sailed with Magellan

"Spellbinding stories that are, by turns, hilarious, stunning and tragic, but always deeply moving, genuine and compassionate."
--Chicago Tribune
"Dream and memory, humor and pathos, song and silence: At his best Dybek combines these disparate elements in a shimmering web."
--Newsday
"All are gems; each glistens with Dybek's spare poetry; combined, they form a vibrant mosaic about a boy's coming of age.... By Magellan's end, you'll never want to leave... [An] A."
--Entertainment Weekly
"Vivid...With I Sailed With Magellan Dybek solidifies his reputation as the rightful heir to Farrell's gritty realism."
--The New York Times Book Review
