Synopsis: From the grand master of the American short story, these fourteen tales of domestic life in the South during the thirties and forties explore that extraordinary world of manners, expectations and unspoken understanding. The reader is drawn as if by magnetic force into a world rendered in breathtaking, painterly detail. These stories are marvelous entertainments, rich with amusement, yet Taylor renders his characters truly and understands them in a profoundly meaningful way.

Review: 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 storytelling.
