Baumbach describes our grip on both the present and the future with What Comes Next . He brings alive the public and private faces of hostility and anxiety through Chris Steiner, a university student on the verge of losing everything, starting with his mind. Jonathan Baumbach is the author of fourteen books of fiction, including You, or The Invention of Memory ; On the Way to My Father’s Funeral: New and Selected Stories ; B: A Novel ; D-Tours ; Separate Hours ; Chez Charlotte and Emily ; The Life and Times of Major Fiction ; Reruns ; Babble ; and A Man to Conjure With . He has also published over ninety stories in such places as Esquire , Open City , and Boulevard . Baumbach, cofounder of the Fiction Collective in 1973, the first fiction writers cooperative in America, has seen his work widely praised. His short stories have been anthologized in Best American Short Stories , The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories , and The Best of TriQuarterly .
