The Selected Stories of Mavis Gallant

Publisher: McClelland & Stewart
Since 1950, the year that The New Yorker accepted one of her short stories and changed her life, Mavis Gallant has written some of the finest short stories in the English language. In tribute to her extraordinary career this elegant 900-page volume brings together the work of her lifetime. Devoted admirers will find stories they do not know, or stories that they will re-
discover, and for newer admirers this is a treasure trove of 52 stories by a remarkable modern Canadian master.
