"This original New Canadian Library collection brings together thirty of Morley Callaghan's best stories from the 1920s through the 1950s. Set in a bygone world of boarding houses and Depression-era gaslight, the themes in these stories - fear, shame, innocence, longing, initiation, and awakening - remain universal. Included are "A Wedding Dress," which Ernest Hemingway called "a hell of a good story"; "The Blue Kimono about the complicated nuances of a marriage; and the title story, "Ancient Lineage," in which a young man visits a woman and her mother in order to learn about their family history."--Back cover.
