Big Picture

(1996)
A collection of stories by

 
 
From the author of Zulus, Watershed, and For Her Dark Skin comes Big Picture, a volume of short stories that deals with the quiet, almost unmarked instant where an off-the-cuff comment or a chance encounter alters lives in ways no one could have predicted. Typical is the pair of old friends whose relationship is transformed by the disappearance of a set of false teeth. Percival Everett's style is low-key and unassuming. It is not the flash of lightening, the peel of thunder, and the sudden downpour that swamps the lives of his characters that concerns him. Rather, it is the slow drip of time that finally wears a new path in landscape of their existence.
