The critical and popular success (New York Times bestseller) that won a Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship and launched Canin's career, Emperor of the Air explores tricky family relationships and tender moments of self-discovery with a voice of compassion rarely found in contemporary short fiction" (San Francisco Chronicle). As People magazine commented, "Like a spider's web, this collection of spare, precise short stories is cleverly alluring and deceptively strong."

Boston Globe
