about

"Jay Neugeboren's 'You Are My Heart' is an object lesson in imaginative empathy and observational intelligence. His fiction for years now has had the courage to be quiet and careful and comprehensively humane, but it's in no way slight. One of his great subjects has been the damage that even the most caring and thoughtful can inflict, and though these stories take place all over the world, they're at heart about the difference between the America to which we aspire and the America in which we live."-Jim Shepard"[Neugeboren] might not be as famous as some of his compeers, like Philip Roth or John Updike, but it's becoming increasingly harder to argue that he's any less talented. Neugeboren's new short story collection serves as a convincing piece of evidence of the author's rare talent? dazzlingly smart and deeply felt? Jay Neugeboren is music to our ears."-Michael Schaub, 'Kirkus Reviews' From the secluded villages in the south of France, to the cattle crawl in the Valley of a Thousand Hills in South Africa, to the hard-knock adolescent streets of Brooklyn, Neugeboren examines the great mysteries and complexities that unsettle and comprise human relationships.In works that are as memorable, engrossing, and exciting as they are gorgeously crafted, Neugeboren delivers on his reputation as one of our pre-eminent American writers. Jay Neugeboren is the author of seventeen books, including two prize-winning novels ( 'The Stolen Jew', 'Before My Life Began' ), two award-winning books of nonfiction ( 'Imagining Robert', 'Transforming Madness' ), and three collections of award-winning stories. His stories have appeared in 'The Atlantic', 'Esquire', 'Virginia Quarterly Review', 'Best American Short Stories', 'The O. Henry Prize Stories,' and 'Penguin Modern Stories'. He is the only author to have won six consecutive Syndicated Fiction Prizes. He lives in New York City.
