Lorrie Moore’s first short story collection, Self-Help, inspired countless writers to mimic her narratives-as-series-of-instructions. In her first novel, Anagrams, Benna Carpenter seeks to remake the world by rearranging the letters that constitute it. The stories of Moore’s later collections, Like Life and Birds of America, are poised between the naturalistic and the surreal, and the protagonists of her recent novels, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? and A Gate at the Stairs, inhabit similarly liminal spaces.
