The complete collection of short fiction from a literary stylist who captured the nuances of life in the American South of the early twentieth century, The Collected Stories of Caroline Gordon is firmly rooted in the traditions, the social habits, and the land itself. As Robert Penn Warren writes in his introduction, "Caroline Gordon's world lies in southeast Kentucky . . . [She displays] a disciplined style as unpretentious and clear as running water, but shot through with glints of wit, humor, pity, and poetry. [She had] the rare gift of the teller of the tale."
