Nothing Right: Short Stories

by Antonya Nelson

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
10 Hrs.


A collection of stories from one of the New Yorker's 20 young fiction writers of the new millennium, a series of unforgettable glimpses into contemporary family life. Set in the American Southwest, and featuring one previously unpublished story, Nothing Right shows one of our best writers working at the top of her game.

Antonya Nelson's stories are masterpieces: poignant, hilarious, truthful explorations of domesticity. The artfully rendered characters in Nothing Right try to keep themselves intact as their personal lives explode around them. A mother and her teenage son finally find common ground when his girlfriend becomes pregnant. A woman leaves her husband and finds herself living with a stranger who is getting extensive plastic surgery while her best friend is dying of cancer. In "Or Else", one of three short stories nominated for a National Magazine Award for the New Yorker, a man brings his girlfriend to a house he claims belongs to his family, only to have his lie exposed when one of the real owners comes home to scatter her father's ashes.

These stories are sure to delight longtime fans and listeners lucky enough to be just discovering Antonya Nelson.
