Spanning more than 50 years, the stories in this collection encompass the life's work of one of America's best-loved and most acclaimed writers.

About the Author

William Maxwell was born in Illinois in 1908. He was the author of a distinguished body of work- six novels, three short story collections, an autobiographical memoir and a collection of literary essays and reviews. A New Yorker editor for forty years, he helped to shape the prose and careers of John Updike, John Cheever, John O'Hara and Eudora Welty. So Long, See You Tomorrow won the American Book Award, and he received the PEN/Malamud Award. He died in New York in 2000.

Reviews

"William Maxwell's tales, long and short, have the elusive ability to reveal us to ourselves" -- Erica Wagner * The Times *
"However different their settings the sensibility remains constant. It is decorous, highly civilised and deeply thoughtful" -- Anthony Quinn * Observer *
"All of them share the effect of a brilliant view - as though a window were opened on a contained and vivid scene...There is a rare clarity and economy here - along with that wise measured humanity" -- Penelope Lively * Spectator *
"The stories are formidable...we know we are in the presence of a master craftsman" * Sydney Morning Herald *
"Maxwell's triumph is to bring brightness and a seething, submerged emotion to an America long dead... he offers us scrupulously executed, moving landscapes of American's twentieth century, and they do not fade" -- Claire Messud * Times Literary Supplement *
