Samenvatting

With an introduction by Wade Hall Morris Grubbs has sifted through vintage classics, little-known gems, and stunning debuts to assemble this collection of forty stories by popular and critically acclaimed writers. In subtle and profound ways they challenge and overturn accepted stereotypes about the land their authors call home, whether by birth or by choice. Kentucky writers have produced some of the finest short stories published in the last fifty years, much of which focuses on the tension between the comforts of community and the siren-like lure of the outside world. Arranged chronologically, from Robert Penn Warren's Blackberry Winter to Crystal E. Wilkinson's Humming Back Yesterday, these stories are linked by their juxtaposition of departures and returns, the familiar and the unknown, home and beyond.

Recensie(s)

A bountiful smorgasbord of classic and lesser known stories by accomplished Kentucky writers who provide a feast for readers of modern short fiction. While Kentucky is the focus of the anthology, the world of imagination invoked by the authors is delectably universal. In this half-century range of stories, there are tales to delight every taste. - Ann Charters, editor of The American Short Story and Its Writer
