“Her stories recall such past masters as Flannery O’Connor and Katherine Mansfield.”  --Newsweek
Throughout her acclaimed career, Alice Adams demonstrated a remarkable finesse in both the novel and the short story.
Her second collection reveals her ability to feelingly project whole lives in the space of a few pages. Here are people trying to pull free of the constraints of family bonds, people bewitched by capricious love, people conquering old panics, or changing in profound ways.
Included are “Snow,” “Legends,”  “Lost Luggage,”  “An Unscheduled Stop, “At First Sight.”
