The nine stories and one poem collected in this volume form the basis for an astonishingly original new film of the same title, directed by Robert Altman. These now-classic stories, when read together, form a searing and indelible portrait of American innocence and loss. With deadpan humor and enormous tenderness, Short Cuts is recognized as the work of "one of the true contemporary masters" (New York Review of Books) of American fiction.
Stories include: "Neighbors," "They're Not Your Husband," "Vitamins," "Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?", "So Much Water So Close to Home," "A Small, Good Thing," "Jerry and Molly and Sam," "Collectors," "Tell the Women We're Going," and the poem "Lemonade."
