A classic work that has charmed generations of readers, this collection assembles Carson McCullers's best stories, including her beloved novella The Ballad of the Sad Cafe. A haunting tale of a human triangle that culminates in an astonishing brawl, the novella introduces readers to Miss Amelia, a formidable southern woman whose cafe serves as the town's gathering place. Among other fine works, the collection also includes Wunderkind, McCullers's first published story written when she was only seventeen about a musical prodigy who suddenly realizes she will not go on to become a great pianist. Newly reset and available for the first time in a handsome trade paperback edition, The Ballad of the Sad Cafe is a brilliant study of love and longing from one of the South's finest writers.

This collection's major work--the haunting title novella--is an outstanding example of Southern Gothic. We learn of solitary, sour, Miss Amelia; and her cousin, a hunchbacked dwarf; and Amelia's rascally former husband. Peter Whitman gracefully conveys the moodiness, pain and struggles of these anguished and self-defeated characters through his steady pacing, authentic accents and sympathetic gender depictions. Unfortunately, Whitman is unable to arouse the listener's interest in any of the accompanying six short stories, which are undeveloped and poorly read. E.E.L. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
