The Paris Review Book of People with Problems

Picador

Problems manifest themselves in every setting, with every person, and of course in every story. How these dilemmas emerge and are dealt with, and by whom, make up the irresistible conceit of The Paris Review's newest fiction anthology. Throughout these pages you will find men plagued with guilt, women burdened by history, scientists bound by passion, mothers fogged with delusion, and lovers vexed with jealously. In the theme that encompassed every life, no protagonist—or reader!—is exempt.

With a hilarious introduction by Magnetic Fields frontman Stephen Merritt, The Paris Review Book of People with Problems is sure to be one of the most sought-after and discussed collections of the year.

This volume includes the work of Annie Proulx, Mary Robison, Norman Rush, Joanna Scott, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rick Bass, Charles Baxter, Wells Tower, Julie Orringer, Ben Okri, Malinda McCollum, James Lasdun, Charles Smith, Denis Johnson, Miranda July, Richard Stern, and Frederick Busch.
