Description

A wedge is driven between a husband and wife when a mysterious stranger arrives, claiming to have grown up in their home. After agreeing to marry a beautiful, headstrong Russian immigrant in exchange for a promotion, a bus boy turned waiter finds himself entangled in a web of organized crime. A strange confluence of circumstances at the end of an ordinary workday causes a man to go off the grid, living off what he can forage in the same affluent suburb where he once lived comfortably with his family. These and the other mesmerizing works of short fiction in this collection are resonant with the mystery, tension, beauty, and insight that distinguish E. L. Doctorow's novels. Containing six new stories that have never appeared in book form, and a selection of previous Doctorow classics, ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD affords us another opportunity to savor the genius of this American master.show more
