Harry Mathews

A companion to The Human Country: New and Collected Stories, this volume contains all of Harry Mathews’s nonfiction.

Throughout the collection Mathews examines the relationship between form and literature in a lucid, intimate voice, arguing with intelligence, grace, and humor for the importance of artifice.
