YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU. Selected Stories 1981-2018

New York: Scribner, 2022. First edition. Hardcover. When John Edgar Wideman won the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story, he joined a list of esteemed writers, from Eudora Welty to George Saunders, who are acknowledged masters of the short story. Here he gathers a representative selection from his career, stories that challenge what defines, separates, and unites us, and, to quote Wideman, seek to "deconstruct the given formulas of African American culture and life." His stories are grounded in the streets and the people of Homewood, the Pittsburgh neighborhood of his childhood, but they range far beyond there, to the small western towns of Wyoming and to historic Philadelphia, the contemporary world, and the ancient past. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Item #15005
