If you give up your career and your beautiful wife and find yourself drinking vodka and fixing cars for a living, is that necessarily a step down?

In Hush Hush, Steven Barthelme gives us a simultaneously twisted, heartbreaking, and hilarious account of learning to quit when youre ahead.The collection, which includes the Pushcart Prize-winning Claire, exposes the surprising dignity in lying on your belly in the pouring rain, in ringing your ex-girlfriends doorbell at 4 A.M., in sleeping with your dead wifes best friend.

Co-author with his brother Frederick of the brilliant and devastating casino memoir, Double Down: Reflections on Gambling and Loss, Steven Barthelme seems to cast an eye at his own history and the characters hes known. These are men and women who are down --- but stirringly, not quite out. An unmissable, arresting book from one of the most seminal short story writers of the last twenty years.From the Trade Paperback edition.
