About this title:

Synopsis: In this book of stories--most never before published--Robert Drake has written his most poignant collection thus far. With the theme of the picture frame, Drake has included people, places, and events of a most recent past. "Crowded in the picture" are unforgettable images of memory and grace, love and remorse. But more than the characters and the subjects of the story, the draw of this collection is once again Drake's use of language. The language is the language of the South. It is the language of humanity. While the stories look back, they do so without regret. They were great times, but so is the present. From the town of Woodville to St. Mark's Square in Venice, Drake's powerful language draws the reader not only into the book, but also into the photographs.

From the Publisher: Advance Praise for The Picture Frame and Other Stories by Robert Drake:

"These [stories] are among the best he has ever done. Drake's remarkable ear for the spoken word is still in working order. His skill in recounting the inner tensions of small-town life is unsurpassed. To paraphrase Gertrude Stein, in Drake's stories, there is a there, and it is Woodville, interesting, wonderful, unique, endlessly varied and always the same. Add to that the fact that Robert Drake can flat tell a story."— James A. Perkins, Westminster College, editor, Southern Writers at Century's End
