Russell Banks has established himself as one of the great novelists of our time. But he has also been a master of the short form, publishing four story collections, winning O. Henry and Best American Short Story awards. Now with The Angel on the Roof he offers readers an astonishing collection of thirty years of short fiction characteristically resonant with irony and compassion, honesty and insight, extending into the vast territory of the heart and the world, from working-class New England to Florida, the Caribbean and Africa. Along with nine new stories, he has selected the best from his collections and revised them for this volume. Broad in scope and rich in imagination, The Angel on the Roof is a magnificent book that affirms his place as one of the masters of modern storytelling.
