#1 New York Times–bestselling author: On a lazy afternoon in 1964, a Jewish WWII veteran watches his son’s baseball game, and reflects on his past. Benjamin Federov has lived a thoroughly American life. The son of immigrants, husband to a lovely wife, and father to two healthy sons, he is successful in business, and blessed with good health. During a lazy 1964 summer afternoon at his son’s baseball game, Ben reminisces on the triumphs and failures of his past fifty years. He recalls the comedy of his youth and the horrors of World War II, his alienation as a second-generation child in America and the tenderness of his first love. Insightful and evocative, Voices of a Summer Day is an enchanting story about a man’s life and an unforgettable look at the power of memory. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Beloved for the lens of the strange he places on small-town life, Steven Millhauser further reveals in Voices in the Night the darkest parts of our inner selves to brilliant and dazzling effect. Here are stories of wondrously imaginative hyperrealism, stories that pose unsettling what-ifs or that find barely perceivable evils within the safe boundaries of our towns, homes, and even our bodies. Here, too, are stories culled from religion and fables: from Samuel, who in the masterly "A Voice in the Night" hears the voice of God calling him in the night; to a young, pre-enlightenment Buddha; to Rapunzel and her Prince awakened only to everyday disappointment. Heightened by magic, the divine, and the uncanny, shot through with sly humour, Voices in the Night seamlessly combines the whimsy and surprise of the familiar with intoxicating fantasies that take us beyond our daily lives, all done with the hallmark sleight of hand and astonishing virtuosity of one of our greatest modern storytellers.
