Short-storyauthor Stuart Dybek returns with "I Sailed With Magellan" (Picador paperback, $14), an intricate and intricately linked collection of 11 tales about Chicago's South Side. United, the stories tell the greater tale of Perry Katzek and his growing, endearing clan.

Through Perry's streets walk butchers, hitmen, mothers and factory workers, boys turned men and men turned to urban myth, a tangled tapestry of characters that elevate Chicago to the mythic level of Hughes' Harlem, Joyce's Dublin and Faulkner's Mississippi.Chicago's stolid landscape turns dreamlike and otherworldly in Dybek's hands.
"ISailedWith Magellan" is the work of a modern master short-story craftsman.
