A collection of writings from one of America's most talented, and most neglected, writers. While her stories evoke an almost ur-Cheever quality, her gothic vision of small-town America has influenced horror writers like Stephen King. In addition, she was also a talented domestic comedian, whose humorous essays about family life predated Erma Bombeck. This work includes 16 short stories, an unfinished novel, and lectures about writing that she delivered at colleges and conferences in her last years.
