About this product
- DescriptionStories are t chapters of vels. They should t be read one after ather, as if they were meant to follow along. Read one. Shut the book. Read something else. Come back later. Stories can wait - Mavis Gallant. In 1950, The New Yorker accepted one of Mavis Gallant's short stories for publication and she has since become the one of the most accomplished and respected short story writers of her time. Gallant is an undisputed master whose peerless prose captures the range of human experience in her sweeping portraits set in Europe in the second half of the last century. An expatriate herself, her stories deal with exile, displacement, of love and of estranged emotions, but they are never conventional. This collection of fifty-two stories, written between 1953 and 1995, is timeless, to be savoured and re-read.
- Author BiographyMavis Gallant was born in Montral and has lived in Paris for many years. She has written eleven books, including GREEN WATER, GREEN SKY, her first novel, and PARIS NOTEBOOKS: ESSAYS AND REVIEWS. Her latest collection of stories was ACROSS THE BRIDGE.
