Fiction: Binocular Vision: New & Selected Stories, Edith Pearlman

This relatively unknown writer (though she has published many short stories, her last collection was in 2005), beat out a shortlist full of household names and buzzy authors – Jeffrey Eugenides, Alan Hollinghurst, Teju Cole, and Dana Spiotta — to take home the prize. She deserves it, too — Binocular Vision assembles the best from her previous collections and some glittering new work, each story a masterwork of wit and description.
