Charles Baxter has steadily produced some of the best fiction of the last several decades. He was a longtime faculty member in the creative writing program at the University of Minnesota, defining the short story for his students and contemporaries through teaching and through his masterful, character-driven collections. He has won numerous awards, including the PEN/Malamud Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a nomination for the National Book Award. In A Relative Stranger, Baxter provides some of his best short stories, including “Snow” which has been widely anthologized ever since this first book-form publication. In A Relative Stranger, the stories bring us close to characters that are seemingly real and knowable like the memories of people we might have known long ago. The stories are unadorned yet vibrant with latent meanings, waiting for readers to discover them. Ever since its first printing, A Relative Stranger has proved Baxter to be one of the best short story writers of his generation.

This first edition, first printing is in about-fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, very good with only minor bowing. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, near fine with only very minor creases to head of spine. Baxter’s signature appears on the title page.
