A masterful collection of stories from award-winning author
With The Angel on the
Roof, Russell Banks offers an astonishing collection of thirty
years of his short fiction, which he collected and revised especially for this volume, highlighted
by the inclusion of nine previously uncollected stories that are among the finest he has ever
written. As is characteristic of all of Banks’ works, these stories resonate
with irony and compassion, honesty and insight, extending into the vast
territory of the heart and the world, from working-class New England to the
Caribbean and Africa. Broad in scope and rich in imagination, The Angel on the Roof affirms Russell
Banks’ place as one of the masters of American storytelling.
