I am still over the moon about DeWitt's Last Samurai, although don't think I've ever successfully convinced anybody to read it. After that first novel I adored, there was a second novel-slash-pastiche that I have deeeeeeeply mixed feelings about, and out of nowhere, there's this surprise book of short stories that appeared in 2018. I also kind of hate short stories! But I love DeWitt, so I bought it immediately. Like, IMMEDIATELY.
Her brilliance is on display here, and each story or exploration is less a story than an etude - an excuse to demonstrate her chops.
