Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 50 Min.


Here is a remarkable debut short-story collection by a fresh and captivating new voice in American literature.

Z. Z. Packer's first collection of short stories is rich with unexpected turns, indelible images, and penetrating insight that belies someone so young. Her stories plunge us into the worlds of people living on the edge and to the flashpoints that make or break them, that shape their worldviews forever.

In "The Stranger", a third-grade girl tries to find her place in the microcosm of summer camp in the larger world during the height of the Atlanta child murders in 1981. The girl's bathroom at camp is the setting for a clash between an all-black and an all-white Brownie troop in "Brownies". And two young women prod the boundaries of friendship and love in "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere".

A highly anticipated debut from an award-winning young writer.
