We Could Be Like That Couple
A first year university student has a psychic relationship with her linguistics professor. An adolescent ballerina with a salt addiction re-imagines her life. A bookstore manager explains the fine art of stocking to a new employee. These are some of the scenarios explored in We Could Be Like That Couple -- Sarah Steinberg's first collection of fiction. At once poignant, charming, and peculiar, this is an important and exhilarating debut. Steinberg has achieved a rare feat for a first book: a collection that exhibits narrative range, intellectual prowess, and sharp wit.
