Black Swans: Stories
“Babitz’s talent for the brilliant line, honed to a point, never interferes with her feel for languid pleasures.” —The New York Times Book Review
A new reissue of Babitz’s collection of nine stories that look back on the 1980s and early 1990s—decades of dreams, drink, and glimpses of a changing world. Black Swans further celebrates the phenomenon of Eve Babitz, cementing her reputation as the voice of a generation.
With an introduction by Stephanie Danler, bestselling author of Sweetbitter.
“On the page, Babitz is pure pleasure—a perpetual–motion machine of no–stakes elation and champagne fizz.” —The New Yorker
