This collection of twenty-six stories by one of America's finest writers spans nearly thirty years. "The White Rooster" was first published in 1947 in Mademoiselle; "Bridge of Music, River of Sand" was published in 1975 in The Atlantic Monthly. Nineteen of the stories were originally published in two volumes, Ghost and Flesh and The Faces of Blood Kindred, and the remaining seven in American and European magazines. Since the publication of his first story, Mr. Goyen has established himself as a distinguished figure in American literature. ... It is in his short fiction that Mr. Goyen's talents as a born story-teller are most forcefully displayed. Whether he writes of a man sitting on a flagpole and refusing to come down, a woman so tormented by the crowing of a rooster that she commits murder, or a man who takes up residence in a children's playhouse, Mr. Goyen conveys the oddness, a hidden magic, some sudden beauty, that is at the heart of human experience.
