"With prose that is Kafka-esque, side-splitting, and existentially focused, this collection announces Baumbauch as a writer of the bravest, most talented philosophical fiction one can hope to find--and also the most enjoyable. Fans of Joy Williams will swoon over the unstoppable dry-rub of fatally true humor. I couldn't put it down." --Alissa Nutting "Serious, shrewd, playful and passionate, Baumbach's stories are many things, but most of all wondrously human." --B.J. HollarsA staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Jonathan Baumbach's latest collection, "Flight of Brothers," is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. The stories within are filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache as well as the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach's fiction from the start. Jonathan Baumbach is the author of sixteen books of fiction, and has also published over ninety stories published in such places as "Esquire "and "Boulevard."

He has also published over 90 stories published in such places as Esquire, Open City and Boulevard. Jonathan, co-founder of The Fiction Collective in 1973 (it was reinvented as FC2 in 1988), the first fiction writers cooperative in America, has seen his work widely praised. His short stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories, O.Henry Prize, and The Best of Tri-Quarterly. The New York Times Book Review referred to him in 2004 as ." . . an underappreciated writer. He employs a masterfully dispassionate, fiercely intelligent narrative voice whose seeming objectivity is always a faltering front for secret passion and despair."
