About the Author:

A Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Willa Cather s work was profoundly influenced by her upbringing in rural Nebraska. During her young adulthood Cather proved herself intelligent and capable, initially training for a career as a medical doctor, but discovered a love of, and talent for, writing while attending the University of Nebraska. Following graduation, Cather worked as a journalist for several women s magazines before becoming a high school teacher; an opportunity work as an editor at McClure s provided Cather with her first chance to publish as the magazine serialized her first novel, Alexander s Bridge, to critical acclaim. This was soon followed by works that have since become best-loved American classics, including My Antonia, The Song of the Lark, and her Pulitzer-Prize winner, One of Ours. Cather died in 1947 at the age of 73.

Review:

Collection of eight short stories about artists and the arts by Willa Cather, published in 1920. Four of the stories were reprinted from Cather's first collection, The Troll Garden (1905). The stories include "Flavia and Her Artists," in which an artist exploits a benefactor; "The Garden Lodge," about a woman who suppresses her artistic impulses in exchange for a well-ordered life; "A Wagner Matinee," in which a nephew witnesses his aunt's communion with music; and PAUL'S CASE, Cather's most famous short story. The remaining four stories--"Coming, Aphrodite!," "The Diamond Mine," "A Gold Slipper," and "Scandal"--all concern opera singers. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
