Synopsis: From the author of the best-selling novel The Street comes a stunning collection of stories that captures a remarkably diverse panorama of African-American experience in the 1950s and 1960s--stories of "a small town pharmacist's family, a New York nightclub drummer, a high school English teacher, a factory worker, a junk dealer, [and] a charmingly perceptive 12-year-old" (Christian Science Monitor). Set mainly along the East Coast, these realistic tales are, as one reviewer said, "a rare pleasure" (Belles Lettres) to read, as powerful today as they were when they were first published in 1971.

About the Author: Ann Petry (1908-1997), a black novelist, short story writer, and writer of books for young people, is one of America's most distinguished authors. Ann began by studying pharmacology, and in 1934, received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Connecticut College of Pharmacy. She worked as a registered pharmacist in Old Saybrook and in Lyme, and during these years wrote several short stories. When she married George David Petry in 1938, the course of her life changed. They lived in New York City, and Ann went to work for the Harlem Amsterdam News. By 1941, she was covering general news stories and editing the women's pages of the People's Voice in Harlem. Her first published story appeared in 1943 in the Crisis, a magazine published monthly by the NAACP. Subsequent to that, she began work on her first novel, The Street, which was published in 1946 and for which she received the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship. Mrs. Petry has written two more novels, The Country Place and The Narrows, and numerous short stories, articles and children's books. In addition, she was appointed visiting professor of English at the University of Hawaii (1944 - 45) and has lectured widely throughout the United States. Ann returned with her husband to Old Saybrook in 1947 and lived there until here death. They have one daughter.
