This collection celebrates a six-decade career devoted to the art of the story and the novella, a literary event for the lover of short fiction.

"A retrospective collection of 27 stories, written over a period of more than half a century, by a Southern writer whose best fiction merits comparison with the work of Katherine Anne Porter and Eudora Welty." (Kirkus Reviews)
Or Flannery O'Connor, Carson McCullers, Katherine Anne Porter, or even Lee Smith. I read only two or three of Spencer's stories, but they were as slow and languid as a Mississippi June. Maybe that's the point, but I like stories and sentences that are a little more energetic.
