Additional Information

Best known for his complex and beautiful novels--regularly compared to those of Thomas Pynchon, William Gaddis, and Don DeLillo--Joseph McElroy is equally at home in the short story, having written numerous pieces over the course of his career that now, collected at last, serve as an ideal introduction to one of the most important contemporary American authors. Combining elements of classic McElroy with tantalizing stories pointing the way ahead (the spare and dangerous "No Man's Land," the lush and mischievous "The Campaign Trail"), "Night Soul and Other Stories" presents a wide range of work from a monumental artist.

A highly decorated author, being the recipient of the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 1976; the American Academy of Arts and Letters fellowship in '77; and twice honored with the National Endowment of the Arts fellowship, it is a shame that McElroy has a... Read more
