Our Story Begins: New and Selected Stories

Tobias Wolff

Tobias Wolff’s first two books, In the Garden of the North American Martyrs and Back in the World, were a powerful demonstration of how the short story can ‘provoke our amazed appreciation’ (New York Times Book Review). In the years since he’s written a third collection, The Night in Question, as well as a pair of genre-defining memoirs (This Boy’s Life and In Pharaoh’s Army), the novella The Barracks Thief, and, most recently, a novel, Old School.Now he returns with fresh revelations about biding one’s time, or experiencing first love, or burying one’s mother - that come to a variety of characters in circumstances at once every day and extraordinary: a retired Marine enrolled in college while her son trains for Iraq, a lawyer taking a difficult deposition, an American in Rome indulging the gypsy who’s picked his pocket. In these stories, Wolff proves himself as a writer of the highest order: part storyteller, part philosopher, someone deeply engaged in asking hard questions that take a lifetime to resolve.
