Winner of the first annual Spokane Prize for Short Fiction, Love Among the Greats is a magnificent world tour of characters, tones, and fictional structures, all of them brought with a stunning restraint and clarity reminiscent of Joyce's Dubliners.
Edith Pearlman's characters are children, old women, young men, rabbis, toy makers, lovers, invalids, immigrants, schmoozers, angels, and fools; all of them perfectly real and accessible, all of them drawn with a kind of comic quietude that only excellent writers can sustain.

EDITH PEARLMAN has published stories in The Massachusetts Review, Yankee Magazine, The Antioch Review, and The Kenyon Review, among many other journals and has twice been included in Best American Short Stories anthologies. Her first book of stories, Vaquita (Pittsburgh, 1996), won the Drue Heinz Prize for fiction.
