One of the most anticipated books of 2017 New York Magazine The Washington Post New York Observer The Millions Book Riot s All the Books Podcast and FuseThe first collection of short stories from the critically acclaimed prize winning author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour These eleven stories by Joshua Ferris many of which were first published in The New Yorker are at once thrilling strange and comic The modern tribulations of marriage ambition and the fear of missing out as the temptations flow like wine and the minutes of life tick down are explored with the characteristic wit and insight that have made Ferris one of our most critically acclaimed novelists Each of these stories burrows deep into the often awkward and hilarious misunderstandings that pass between strangers and lovers alike and that turn ordinary lives upside down Ferris shows to what lengths we mortals go to coax human meaning from our very modest time on earth an effort that skews ever more desperately in the direction of redemption There s Arty Groys the Florida retiree whose birthday celebration involves pizza a prostitute and a life saving heart attack There s Sarah the Brooklynite whose shape shifting existential dilemma is set in motion by a simple spring breeze And there s Jack a man so warped by past experience that he s incapable of having a normal social interaction with the man he hires to help him move out of storage The stories in The Dinner Party are about lives changed forever when the reckless gives way to possibility and the ordinary cedes ground to mystery And each one confirms Ferris s reputation as one of the most dazzlingly talented deeply humane writers at work today
