Description
(A New York Times Notable Book of the Year) Originally published in 1981, this is the complete collection of short fiction from O. Henry Award winner Caroline Gordon (1895–1981)—23 tales from a literary stylist who captured the nuances of life in the American South of the early 20th century. These are stories firmly rooted in the traditions, the social habits, and the land itself; as Robert Penn Warren writes in his introduction, "Caroline Gordon's world lies in southeast Kentucky ... [where] the sense of kinship, of the clan, of the family, hung on long after it died elsewhere.... [Her stories display] a disciplined style as unpretentious and clear as running water, but shot through with glints of wit, humor, pity, and poetry. Caroline Gordon belongs in that group of Southern women who have been enriching our literature uniquely in this century—all so different in spirit, attitude, and method, but all with the rare gift of the teller of the tale."

"[Caroline Gordon] is great on getting things there so concretely that they can't possibly escape.... That is real masterly doing, and nobody does it any better than Caroline. You walk through her stories like you are walking in a complete real world. And watch how the meaning comes from the things themselves and not from her imposing anything."—Flannery O'Connor
