NINE INCHES, Tom Perrotta’s first true collection, features 10 stories --- some sharp and funny, some mordant and surprising, and a few intense and disturbing. Whether he’s dropping into the lives of two teachers --- and their love lost and found --- in “Nine Inches,” or documenting the unraveling of a dad at a Little League game in “The Smile on Happy Chang’s Face,” Perrotta writes with a sure sense of his characters and their secret longings.

Tom Perrotta returns to the familiar suburban territory he’s visited in novels like LITTLE CHILDREN with a thoughtful look at what the world might feel like to ordinary people left behind after a Rapture-like event.
