About this title


Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, Eudora Welty, John Lutz, and others expose the passion and the murderous intrigue lying just below the genteel, stately surface of the land of Dixie.

From Booklist:

What fun awaits the reader of this anthology of mystery short stories, all with southern settings and drawn from the pages of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. The three stories by big names will attract the most attention. Flannery O'Connor's piece, "The Comforts of Home," is typical of her marvelous perversity; it tells of a strange, haunted man who deeply resents the young woman whom his elderly, do-gooding mother has brought into their household. Raymond Carver is represented by the exemplary, bare-bones "Tell the Women We're Going," in which two married men pick up some girls, and one of the men, for no apparent reason, kills both of them. "Old Mr. Marblehall" by Eudora Welty is more a character study than a story (of an old man disregarded in town as uninteresting, when in fact he's leading a double life with two wives), but there's no one better than Welty at carving characters as if she were Michelangelo. And the stories by lesser-known writers aren't chopped liver by any means, particularly John Lutz's ambience-laden "The Right to Sing the Blues," about a private eye investigating a jazz pianist for a nervous New Orleans club owner--with a plot twist that hits the spot, much like a good serving of jambalaya. For all active mystery collections. Brad Hooper
