In 2017, inspired in part by Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw,"
the acclaimed English novelist John Lanchester published a ghost
story in The New Yorker. "Signal" was a sensation among readers and
was featured on public radio-and it was the first short story of
any kind Lanchester had ever written. Since then he's written
several more eerie stories of contemporary life and the perils of
technology that plunk the reader down in the uncanny world of The
Twilight Zone or Black Mirror, and Reality and Other Stories
gathers the best of them. A mysterious tall man haunts a country
house in search of a cell signal; a translator at an academic
conference starts hearing things over his headset that nobody
should hear; a family discovers their dependence on the latest
technological gadget goes to the very foundations of human
relations; and the merry contestants in a reality TV show may
actually be... somewhere very hellish indeed. Reality and Other
Stories is a book of disquiet that captures the severe
disconnection and distraction of our time.
