This long-overdue collection of Walter Tevis' s best short stories proves him to be a master of the form. they range from the ingenuity of The Other End of the Line, in which a man receives a phone call from himself in the future and follows the instructions he is given with unexpected and disastrous results, to the sophistication of Rent Control, where a couple discover that when they are in bed together they can literally make time stop, to the deeply-felt emotion of A Visit from Mother, whose protagonist is revisited by his dead parents.

Entertaining and perceptive, the stories in Far From Home show the same talent which has made Tevis's novels The Man who Fell to Earth and Mockingbird modern SF classics.
