I hope and pray that experiencing how God and I have faced some of the disturbing transitions in my life might help you or a loved one through some of the challenges you face in life.
Winner of 2013 Rea Award for short fiction “A rare and true master” (Richard Ford), the celebrated author of The Light in the Piazza returns with these spellbinding stories. Since her remarkable debut in 1948, Elizabeth Spencer has transfixed readers with her uncanny ability to portray how “twisted, chafing, inescapable, and life-supporting” (Alice Munro) the ties are that bind families and marriages. Here, with nine new stories, Spencer maps “the murky territory between our obligations and our desires” (David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times), revealing the deep emotional fault lines and unseen fractures that lie just beneath the veneer of normal family life. Compared to Cheever and Hawthorne, Spencer affirms her stature as one of the outstanding living writers of the American South.
