Synopsis: Short stories depict critical moments in the lives of middle class Southerners during the 1930s and 1940s

Review: This collection features 14 stories set in the cities of the Deep South in the 1920s and 30s. The subjects are ordinary people -- families and households of the time -- caught in the extraordinary tensions of everyday life. The prose befits the topics; simple on the surface yet rich and elegant. And just because Peter Taylor, a native Southerner, has captured a time and a region in this refreshing book, doesn't mean the work will appeal only to those interested in "Southern" writers. This 1986 PEN/Faulkner Award winner is rich with the kind of material that will appeal to anyone interested in good storytelling.
