About this title


Set in the fictional town of Bogs Harbor, Maine, this 192-page book is a collection of short works including a novella of about 85 pages, seven short stories, a short play, and two essays. It is available in paperback or hardcover (cloth).

From the Back Cover:

"Elizabeth Elder’s fiction is full of the textures, agreeable occasions, unhappinesses, and sudden, inexplicable, private catastrophes of quiet lives in a small place. Comedy and grief, frustration and fulfillment are inextricable from each other. Characters have their depths and their shallows; that does not make them inconsistent, but human. The stories are so inconspicuously crafted that they have the circumstantial, detailed authority of something overheard in conversation. She is a generous, canny, and keenly observant writer." Franklin Burroughs, Bowdoin College professor of English Literature, author and award-winning essayist.
