The Stories of Russell Banks.
In 'The Angel On The Roof', Banks offers readers an astonishing collection of thirty years of short fiction. As in all of Banks' work, these stories resonate with irony and compassion, honesty and insight, extending into the vast territory of the heart and world, from working-class New England to Florida, the Caribbean and Africa.
Along with nine new stories, Banks has selected the best pieces from his previous collection and revised them especially for this volume. Broad in scope and rich in imagination, 'The Angel On The Roof' is a true representation of the breadth of Russell Banks' work and cements his position as a master of modern American storytelling.
