About this title


Once Upon A Time, before Atheneum in New York took a chance on an unknown author and published Staggerford (1977), Jon Hassler wrote a number of short stories that introduce many of the characters in his later novels. Only a handful of these stories had appeared in print (mostly in small literary magazines) until we published our best-selling Keepsakes and Other Stories.

From the Back Cover:

THIS FIRST COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES by Jon Hassler deserves royal fanfare! All of these stories are set in the Midwest. Most are rooted in Jon's own experiences when he was growing up in Plainview, Minnesota, and later as a high school English teacher in various Minnesota high schools and colleges. "I started to write boyhood memories at random", Jon told us, "and some of them proved pretty provocative so I developed them into stories". You'll be glad that he did!
