Abstract:
"Internationally celebrated as one of writing's most gifted, unique stylists, Lisa Moore returns with her third story collection, a soaring chorus of voices, dreams, loves, and lives. Taking us from the Fjord of Eternity to the streets of St. John's and the swamps of Orlando, these stories show us the timeless, the tragic, and the miraculous hidden in the underbelly of our everyday lives. A missing rock god may have jumped a cruise ship - in the Arctic. A grieving young woman may live next to a serial rapist. A man's last day on earth replays in the minds of others in a furiously sensual, heartrending fugue. Something for Everyone finds Moore fired with peak ambition - she seems bent on nothing less than rewiring the circuitry of the short story itself."-- Provided by publisher.

Internationally celebrated as one of literature's most gifted stylists, Lisa Moore returns with her third story collection, a soaring chorus of voices, dreams, loves, and lives. Taking us from the Fjord of Eternity to the streets of St. John's and the swamps of Orlando, these stories show us the timeless, the tragic, and the miraculous hidden in the underbelly of our everyday lives. A missing rock god may have jumped a cruise ship -- in the Arctic. A grieving young woman may live next to a serial rapist. A man's last day on earth replays in the minds of others in a furiously sensual, heartrending fugue. Something for Everyone is Moore at the peak of her prowess -- she seems bent on nothing less than rewiring the circuitry of the short story itself.
