Call Me Ahab: A Short Story Collection (Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction) by Anne Finger

Imagine a Hollywood encounter between Helen Keller and Frida Kahlo, two female icons of disability. Or the story of Moby Dick, or, The Leg, told from Ahabs perspective. What if Vincent Van Gogh resided in a twentieth-century New York hotel, surviving on food stamps and direct communications with God? Or if the dwarf pictured in a seventeenth-century painting by Velazquez should tell her story? And, finally, imagine the encounter between David and Goliath from the Philistines point of view. nbsp; These are the characters who people history and myths as counterpoints to the normal. And they are also the characters who populate Anne Fingers remarkable short stories. Affecting but never sentimental, ironic but never cynical, these wonderfully rich and comic tales reimagine life beyond the margins of normality.
