Inhaltsangabe

Mavis Gallant is an undisputed master of the short story whose peerless prose captures the range of human experience while evoking time and place with unequaled skill. This new collection of 15 of Gallant's stories, edited by best-selling author Michael Ondaatje, gathers the best of her many stories set in Europe and Paris, where Gallant has long lived.

Mysterious, funny, insightful, and heartbreaking, these are tales of expatriates and exiles, wise children and straying saints. They compose a secret history, both intimate and panoramic, of modern times, and offer a kaleidoscopic impression of the world within a world that is Paris.

Kritikerstimmen

"Mavis Gallant writes some of the most superbly crafted and perceptive stories of our time." ( Globe and Mail)
"Mavis Gallant's finely honed prose captures the small details that illuminate a life." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Ms. Gallant...has dared to drift in a disorienting century, always trusting her own imaginative compass. Her fiction, never fooled into trying to keep up with history, will last a long time." ( New York Times)
