This is the first collection to appear in twenty years from one
of America's best short story writers. His thirteen stories are
marvelous--funny, heartbreaking, and wise by turns, and on occasion
all three at once.
Praise for Max Apple:
"Apple may not be as well known a humorist as Russell Baker,
Calvin Trillin, or Garrison Keillor. But he should be. He belongs
in the same crowd."-- "Newsday," reviewing "Free Agents"
"Apple is an amiable, good-hearted, sweet-tempered writer whose
short pieces occupy an agreeable territory somewhere between fact
and fiction."-- "Washington Post Book World," reviewing "Free
"A tender, tough, and totally compelling account."-- "USA
Today," reviewing "Roommates"
"The slim, sweet slices of this particular Apple pie are always
served warm and contain generous amounts of humor, off-the-wall
inventiveness, and down-to-earth intelligence."-- "Cleveland Plain
Dealer," reviewing "Free Agents"
