About the Author

Eugene K. Garber's Metaphysical Tales won the Associated Writing Program's award for short fiction. His stories have been widely published in such journals as Transatlantic Review, Paris Review, Kenyon Review, Antaeus, Georgia Review, Sewanee Review, and TriQuarterly and have appeared in the Pushcart Prize and Best American Stories anthologies. He is a Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Albany.


"Eugene Garber, casting himself as both Herodotus and Ned Buntline, has elevated American history in the second half of the nineteenth century to the grandeur of a legend about a mighty civilization of thousands of years ago." --Kurt Vonnegut "The Historian is an extraordinary work of the imagination, six character-linked historical 'fantasies' that capture the comically hubristic heart of the American experience in a compellingly witty and elegant prose. A wonderful book. Eugene Garber is quietly emerging as one of the most gifted and original of the metafictionists." --Robert Coover
