A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Jonathan Baumbach's latest collection, Flight of Brothers, is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. The stories within are filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache as well as the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach's fiction from the start.
"With prose that is Kafka-esque, side-splitting, and existentially focused, this collection announces Baumbauch as a writer of the bravest, most talented philosophical fiction one can hope to find--and also the most enjoyable. Fans of Joy Williams will swoon over the unstoppable dry-rub of fatally true humor. I couldn't put it down." --Alissa Nutting
"Serious, shrewd, playful and passionate, Baumbach's stories are many things, but most of all wondrously human." --B.J. Hollars
