The Night in Question: Stories.
by Wolff, Tobias.

Publisher Information:
Bloomsbury,, London:: 1996..

A Fine tight unread copy in Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This collection of stories begins with a man biting a dog. The fact that Wolff is reversing familiar expectations is only half the point. The other half is that Wolff makes the reversal seem inevitable: the dog has attacked his protagonist's young daughter. And everywhere in The Night in Question, we are reminded that truth is deceptive, volatile, and often the last thing we want to know. A young reporter writes an obituary only to be fired when its subject walks into his office, very much alive. A soldier in Vietnam goads his lieutenant into sending him on increasingly dangerous missions. An impecunious mother and son go window-shopping for a domesticity that is forever beyond their grasp. These fifteen stories deliver small, exquisite shocks that speak to living life intensely.The stories include: Mortals, Casualty, Powder, The Life of the Body, Flyboys, Sanity, The Other Miller, Two Boys and a Girl, Migraine, The Chain, Smorgasbord, Lady's Dream, The Night in Question, Firelight and Bullet in the Brain.
