9780349139975: One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories

A boy wins $100,000 in a box of Frosted Flakes - only to discover that claiming the winnings may unravel his family. An acclaimed ambulance driver seeks the courage to follow his heart and throw it all away to be a singer-songwriter. A school principal unveils a bold plan to permanently abolish arithmetic. A new arrival in heaven, overwhelmed by infinite options, procrastinates over his long-ago promise to visit his grandmother. We meet a vengeance-minded hare. We learn why wearing a red T-shirt is the key to finding love; how February got its name; and why the stock market is sometimes just . . . down.

Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, from the deeply familiar to the intoxicatingly imaginative, ONE MORE THING finds its heart in the most human of phenomena: love, fear, family, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element that might make a person complete. The stories in this collection are like nothing else, but they have one thing in common: they share the playful humour, deep heart, inquisitive mind, and altogether electrifying spirit of a writer with a fierce devotion to the entertainment of the reader.

Recensione:

Playful and inventive . . . One More Thing is a special read ( Shortlist)

A teller of funny, skew-whiff tales . . . Novak has, like, totally been compared to David Sedaris and Woody Allen, which is insane but also kinda true ( New Statesman)

Lively, sweet-natured . . . Novak is best when he reaches beyond a punchline.... My favourite piece, 'Dark Matter'. . . feels profound ( Sunday Telegraph)

One More Thing is very funny . . . Novak adds emotional depth to some well-crafted, often explosive pay-offs ( Financial Times)

Remarkably good. There's a wildly eclectic range on display, from personal meditations to flights of absurdist whimsy ( Guardian)

Brilliant surreal stories, full of unexpected twists and turns ( The List)

B.J. blew me away. He just keeps kicking short fiction in the rear, making it run ahead clutching its ass, and then he runs up and kicks it some more, and the result is one of the most aggressively, insanely awesome debuts in a while ( Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story)

Everyone knew that B.J. Novak was smart and sexy, but funny, too!? Wow, screw that guy. I haven't laughed at words this hard since I read ( Joshua Ferris author of The Unnamed and Then We Came to the End)

ONE MORE THING is a funny and inventive debut collection, infused with a deadpan absurdist wit reminiscent of Woody Allen and Ian Frazier. B.J. Novak's stories are sly and playful, but they can pack a real emotional wallop ( Tom Perrotta, author of Nine Inches)

Dark and hilarious, like the fudge Grandma used to make during her 'special' period. Deliciously funny! ( Jack Handey, author of Deep Thoughts and The Stench of Honolulu)

A funny writer with a great ear, but also a genuine storyteller with an observant eye and finely tuned emotional radar ( New York Times - Michiko Kakutani)

Descrizione del libro:

An endlessly entertaining, surprisingly sensitive and startlingly original debut collection that signals the arrival of a welcome new voice in American fiction.
