Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A collection of short works by the late Pulitzer Prize-winning writer features definitive pieces written throughout the course of her career, including the previously unpublished, "Segue," a portrayal of a sonnet writer who faces an unknown darkness. By the author of The Stone Diaries. Reprint.


Review:

"The collection offers a timely reminder of the complexity, subtlety and sheer intelligence of [Shields's] humane vision; such moments are hard-won, reflecting the author's feminist aim to redeem life, light and the unrecorded voice from darkness and death....The stories are not flawless; there are moments of overstated symbolism, whimsy and overdetermined closure. Yet these are imperfections born of the author's formidably ambitious, experimental and questing nature--even a Shields story that doesn't quite come off is rewarding to read."

Samantha Matthews, Times Literary Supplement, 07/23/2004

Review:

"[Shields's] posthumous gathering of work in the short story form is impressive in volume, thematic and technical range, and sheer literary artistry....'Segue'...is a magnificently controlled yet deeply emotional and sensitive tale of a late middle-aged woman coping with aging....A beautiful prose style supports an obvious authorial wisdom about human nature."

Brad Hooper, Booklist, 12/15/2004
