About the Author
Frederick Busch (1941-2006) was the recipient of many honors, including an American Academy of Arts and Letters Fiction Award, a National Jewish Book Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award. The prolific author of sixteen novels and six collections of short stories, Busch is renowned for his writing's emotional nuance and minimal, plainspoken style. A native of Brooklyn, New York, he lived most of his life in upstate New York, where he worked for forty years as a professor at Colgate University.
Reviews
Prolific and consistently impressive... as usual, Busch weds a dark, morally ambiguous world view to superbly composed prose...
For years Frederick Busch has been at work on one of the most impressive bodies of American fiction.--Reynolds Price
Busch is a writer both witty and humane, and his characters are often deftly funny; for them, pain is an occasion not for self-pity but for gallows humor.
