Stern redux

In the Village Voice, Ed Park reviews the recent crop of Richard Stern reissues, nailing both the author's criminally low profile and delectable prose:
Richard Stern is known for not being better known. A native New Yorker (born 1928) and for many years a University of Chicago professor, an intimate of Bellow and Roth, Stern has written unclassifiable novels marked by nimble wit, immense intelligence, and (to cop a Stern title) depths of feeling. Almonds to Zhoof, his massive new story collection, approaches maximum density: A page in the novella "Veni, Vidi...Wendt" was so rich with pleasures that this reader felt like tearing it out and eating it.
Bon appetit!

Comments:
"criminally low profile." Interesting way of putting it.
 
Salve, James, from Stresa, on Lago Maggiore. Tutto va bene, molto bene. I recently ordered Stern's story collection from a nameless online bookseller. Your Ed Park quote makes me especially glad that I did.
