Review

"Meticulously crafted. . . . This first-rate collection demonstrates why Schwartz remains an American literary treasure." -- Publishers Weekly

A grab bag of realist and experimental stories, each one a treasure . . . Wise, wry, and witty—theses stories in all their stylistic variations are perfect.” -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This excellent writer has the great gift of making even the slightest of domestic situations feel richly alive to the pleasures we allow and the punishments we inflict on ourselves and one another. It is a joy to read this latest collection of her short fictions.” -- Vivian Gornick, author of
Fierce Attachments: A Memoir

“These wonderful stories about our need for connection and our sense of alienation are timely and timeless at once. Lynne Sharon Schwartz is a dazzling writer.” -- Hilma Wolitzer, author of
Hearts

“This elegant new collection includes some of Schwartz’s most surprising and satisfying short works, demonstrating anew her sustained powers as a writer, through an astonishing 28 books and 40 years.”

-- Alix Kates Shulman, author of Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen

“[Schwartz’s] insights are at once sympathetic and drenched with irony." --
The  New York Times  on Rough Strife

Disturbances in the Field seems a more-than-welcome return to a classic idea of the novel... A wonder to read... I can think of no other contemporary writer who writes so well, with such rich sensuality.” -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Wonderful... It goes beyond literature and philosophy to a tough, battered truth.” --
The  New York Times  on  Disturbances in the Field

“A quiet masterwork of late 20th-century American realism.”
--
Kirkus Reviews  on Disturbances in the Field

“The book has the architecture of a sonata.” --
San Jose Mercury News  on Disturbances in the Field --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
