The Other Week

A Novella by

A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Selection

Francine and Freddie live in a little house on the edge of the desert, with not enough money, too many snakes, no coffee, and a very strange gardener named Dennis who wants to start a security cactus ranch and is nursing a lost love. Things are ripe for dissolution.

"The Other Week" is a wickedly sharp, darkly humorous story, from one of contemporary fiction's most singular voices - a National Book Award nominee and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award. A selection from Honored Guest, hailed as "Phenomenally interesting. . . . Miraculously and intelligently weird . . . Joy Williams wastes not a word in the stories that she tells" (Chicago Tribune).
