From one of our most accomplished short story writers, "Drunk with Love" is a deeply compelling collection full of laughter and tears, pathos and tender humor. In these thirteen stories we come to know some of Ellen Gilchrist's most memorable characters: Rhoda Manning, a precocious annd impetuous nine-year-old, confronts an adult world she doesn't yet understand in "1941"; the outrageous southern belle Crystal Weiss quits drinking while her devoted maid and confidante, Traceleen, records the riotous tale in "Traceleen at Dawn"; Nora Jane Whittington, the onetime bandit, is now an expectant mother of twins in the title story. With resilience and passion, Gilchrist's stories explore coming of age, heartbreak, curiosity, and more.

8 1-hour cassettesFrom Publishers Weekly:
These 13 short stories take place around the country but there are few Southern characters, which, in many cases, renders these tales less flavorful than the predominantly Southern ones in Victory Over Japan. Still, "even when Gilchrist's stories do not completely succeed, they are superior fare well worth reading," PW stated.
