Book Description Univ of Georgia Press, Bogart, Georgia, U.S.A., 1993. Cloth. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. FIRST PRINTING. Winner of the 1993 Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. "Mother Rocket" is a collection of seven stories peopled with characters who walk the fault line between assured self-knowledge and dangerous self-deception. Many of Rita Ciresi's stories are centered on momentous occasions: children are conceived or planned for, teenagers reach maturity, marriages are contemplated and broken, parents are mourned." 144 pages. "Whether facing new beginnings or some sort of ending, the characters in these imaginative and intense stories manage to keep their spirits, dreams, and humor miraculously intact despite the reverberations of experience." A fine copy save for a tiny grease mark on bottom of white DJ rear cover. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 004457
