Description
From "the biggest little magazine in the world" comes an addictively clever anthology prescribed to fill all the blank moments of your life. The Paris Review Book for Planes, Trains, Elevators, and Waiting Rooms is the ultimate, and perfect, theme-anthology. It's theme is the reader. Everyday we must live through moments of waiting--to get from one place to the next, from one appointment to another, for something to happen. This ingeniously useful compendium offers reading material to fill those gray moments with beauty, wonder, insight, and emotion. Organized by the time that the reader has available at that moment, the anthology provides a poem for that elevator ride to the lawyer's office; a short story for the thirty-minute commute; a novella for the three-hour plane ride. As ever, The Paris Review provides work from only the best writers of the last three generations. Among those to appear: - Mary Robison - Denis Johnson - Michael Chabon - Marilyn Hacker - Robert Pinsky - and many more.
