Robert Morgan is one of our leading fiction authors. For more on him, check out my blurbs of his other books. This book collects ten new stories from Robert Morgan along with seven reprinted from earlier collections. It was put together by Jonathan Greene, a publisher who is a good friend of Morgan,and whose scintillating conversations with him I have enjoyed more than once. Jonathan has a very keen eye and ear for an author's best work, and it shows in this collection. "Morgan has a deft touch for the nuances of family ties, and his characters in this realistic, evocative and often lyrical collection are formidable and well-drawn." -- Publishers Weekly. "This beautifully crafted collection ... a procession of tales rich with narrative detail and character, told in language as plain and deep as the hills, the whole weighted with an awareness of death that looms over the the struggle for a meaningful life."-- New York Times Book Review.
