Earlier this month, Rick Bass won The Story Prize with his seminal short story collection For a Little While. If you haven’t discovered it, now is the time.

Rick Bass is unsurpassed in his ability to perceive and portray the enduring truths of the human heart. Collected here for the first time is the definitive volume of his stories, selected from thirty years of work.

The stories collected in For a Little While – brimming with magic and wonder, filled with hard-won empathy, marbled throughout with astonishing imagery – have the power both to devastate and uplift.
