مروری بر کتاب
A new collection of marvelous stories distinguished by penetrating psychological acuity and beautiful writing of the highest order by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of "A Summons to Memphis."
This collection features 14 stories set in the cities of the Deep South in the 1920s and 30s. The subjects are ordinary people -- families and households of the time -- caught in the extraordinary tensions of everyday life.
The prose befits the topics; simple on the surface yet rich and elegant. And just because Peter Taylor, a native Southerner, has captured a time and a region in this refreshing book, doesn't mean the work will appeal only to those interested in "Southern" writers.
This 1986 PEN/Faulkner Award winner is rich with the kind of material that will appeal to anyone interested in good storytellin.
