Rate this:
This book-length collection of 11 stories and two essays is the first to appear in nearly 40 years, representing a slice of the prolific writer's work. Influential in the first half of the 20th century, her work has been neglected in the second and is enjoying a revival of interest. Fisher's subject matter ranges from New England life, to the French Basques, and to the struggles of African Americans to gain equal rights, and reflects her lifelong involvement in social causes. An introduction and afterword by Mark Madigan (English, U. of Vermont) surveys the writer's life and work, highlighting its graceful and enduring values.
