Willa Cather Selected Short Stories


Willa Cather – Selected Short Stories is a handsome collection of some of her finest short works.

Well-crafted tales, her stories are often about people’s secret desires, unrequited love; about poverty and how a daily grind wears away every noble impulse in a person; and how people want what they cannot have.

It’s a book about hunger and thirst, and the darkness we turn to.

The precise language, profound psychological study, and finely honed plots that characterize her later work are on full display.

In the fateful interaction of her characters, and her absorbing narrative, she displays the virtuoso storytelling skills that have made her one of the most admired masters of American fiction

WILLA CATHER (1873-1947) was an American author who achieved recognition for her classic novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, in works such as O Pioneers! The Song of the Lark, and My Antonia. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1922.
