Includes 'Wakefield', which is now a major motion picture starring Bryan Cranston.

A wedge is driven between a husband and wife when a mysterious stranger
arrives, claiming to have grown up in their home. After agreeing to marry a
beautiful, headstrong Russian immigrant in exchange for a promotion, a bus boy
turned waiter finds himself entangled in a web of organized crime. A strange
confluence of circumstances at the end of an ordinary workday causes a man to
go off the grid, living off what he can forage in the same affluent suburb where he
once lived comfortably with his family. These and the other mesmerizing works of
