From the Publisher. David Sedaris didn’t write the stories in Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules. But he did read them. And he liked them enough to hand-pick them for this collection of short fiction. Featuring such notable writers as Lorrie Moore, Alice Munro, Joyce Carol Oates, Jean Thompson, and Tobias Wolff, Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules includes some of the most influential and talented short story writers, contemporary and classic.

David Sedaris edited this perfect collection of short stories that I have read at least eight times. Flawless stories from a sterling list of authors including Dorothy Parker, Tobias Wolff, Lorrie Moore, Jhumpa Lahiri, and many more. Bonus: proceeds from this collection benefit reading programs nationwide.
