sinopsis

The definitive collection from a profoundly influential master of the short story, who is due for a revival of interest with the upcoming publication of her journals. EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY CONTEMPORARY CLASSICS.

A Canadian-born writer who lived in France, Mavis Gallant died in 2014 at the age of ninety-one. She has been hailed by Michael Ondaatje as "one of the greatest story writers of our time." Her more than one hundred stories, most published in The New Yorker over five decades beginning in 1951, have been aptly compared to those of Chekhov, Henry James, and George Eliot, and have influenced generations of writers. With irony and an unfailing eye for the telling detail, Gallant weaves stories of spare complexity, often pushing the boundaries of the form in unconventional directions. Her characters are almost all exiles of one sort or another, as she herself was for most of her expatriate life. This generous collection of fifty-two stories, selected from across her prolific career by the author herself, includes a preface in which she discusses the sources of her art.
