These eleven masterful stories - the first collection from acclaimed author Jennifer Egan - deal with loneliness and longing, regret and desire. Egans characters - models and housewives, bankers and schoolgirls - are united by their search for something outside their own realm of experience.

Elegant and poignant, the stories in Emerald City are seamless evocations of self-discovery.
