A collection of masterful stories from the bestselling, award-winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad: “Boldly modulated tales of displacement and blazing moments of truth…. Riveting, vaguely Hitchcockian…. Piercingly tender…. Outstanding (The New York Times Book Review).

These elegant and poignant stories–Egan’s first collection–deal with loneliness and longing, regret and desire. Egan’s characters–models and housewives, bankers and schoolgirls–are united by their search for something outside their own realm of experience. They set out from locations as exotic as China and Bora Bora, as cosmopolitan as downtown Manhattan, or as familiar as suburban Illinois to seek their own transformations. The stories in Emerald City are seamless evocations of self-discovery.
