Lunar Savings Time

A collection of stories by

A new collection from an acknowledged master of flash-fiction The stories in Lunar Savings Time slip through time and between dreams and waking, between native tongue and elusive translation, long-dead writers and just-opened books. Alex Epstein has created a masterwork in the finest strokes-stories in which humor, stubborn memory, and strange beauty meet and part ways in less than a page. Through these pages journey a woman who travels back in time to visit a psychoanalyst; Kafka, had he lived and emigrated to Israel after the Holocaust; the wandering Cain; the siege of Leningrad; Zen masters, beggars, writers, ghosts. In Epstein's lyrical philosophy, every imaginative proposition must answer to the burden of history--or perhaps, for every moon, there's rain; for every love story, the fact of time. "He can be placed next to Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Kafka, Borges," Haaretz has said of Epstein; Lunar Savings Time is his most radical collection yet, a wondrous achievement.
