Abstract

Voice of Reason is a collection of short fiction that explores, often from a satirical angle, Millennial-inflected versions of ambition, ego and idealism. The stories are heavily influenced by the precision and subtle humor of Ian McEwan and Richard Yates, by the generosity and formal ingenuity of William Trevor and Alice Munro, and by the tonal experimentation of George Saunders and Miranda July.
