(NYRB Classics). This first collection of short stories by America's great post-WWII woman of letters reveals her brilliance as a stylist and as an observer of contemporary life. A young woman returns from New York to her childhood Kentucky home and discovers the world of difference within her. A girl's boyfriend is not quite good enough, his 'silver eyes, light and cool, revealing nothing except pure possibility, like a coin in hand.' A magazine editor's life falls strangely to pieces after she loses both her husband and her job. Hardwick's 'razor-sharp prose' is in evidence everywhere. 224p. (NYRB Classics).
