Product description


"Superb. It is a slow, beautiful dance of love and death."--Chicago Tribune Book World

"[White's] style in this collection of stories is taut and his language knowing, almost savage, in its ironies. Never does he swerve from a tone of complete authority, nor are his portrayals of human frailty ever less than bitingly perceptive."--Baltimore Sun

"White is a shifty, complex artist with the ability to hit and run at any point in his narrative -maintaining a distance from emotional involvement while inexorably tightening those screws."--Kirkus

Book Description

An essential story collection from one of the foremost novelists of the twentieth century, now a part of the Text Classics series.
