en Limba Engleză Paperback – April 2013

Nancy Zafris is a critically acclaimed writer because of the highly distinctive, piercing intelligence that underlies her works. Her gifts accumulate in a vision that somehow combines just the right amount of irony, subtle humor, and compassion for characters you won't see anywhere else in contemporary fiction. Those characters are emotionally all over the map too: resolute, sympathetic, and indelible--their stories can be laugh-out-loud funny one minute and bittersweet the next.

In The Home Jar, Zafris reconfirms herself to be among the keenest observers of the human condition around. This is her first short story collection since the critically acclaimed The People I Know, which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, and her most famous work, the New York Times notable novel The Metal Shredders. Zafris's very loyal following of readers will herald The Home Jar as a major event in American letters.

“The Home Jar offers an intense vision of America that is both heartbreakingly sad and strangely wonderful. This book is further evidence that Nancy Zafris is one of America’s best storytellers. As a reader, I adore her work; as a writer, I envy it immensely. “—Donald Ray Pollock, author of The Devil All the Time
“This is a powerful collection by a fearless writer. Zafris skips effortlessly across state lines and international boundaries, exploring what goes both said and unsaid between people who care about each other. These are fugitive characters in the hands of an experienced storyteller, and the reader feels at home in these stories, no matter where Zafris takes us.”—Caitlin Horrocks, author of This Is Not Your City
