9780140080117: A Quiet Enemy (Contemporary American Fiction)

These seven stories, set in the rural South and West, delve beneath the surface of ordinary lives, revealing their foibles and idiosyncracies. For example, an old deaf woman is kidnapped by a stranger whom she takes to the devil, and a money-grubbing man meets a woman no less hard than himself.
