Abstract:

Mavis Gallant is a contemporary legend, a frequent contributor to the New Yorker for close to fifty years, and 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 fifteen of Gallant's stories, edited and with an introduction by best-selling author Michael Ondaatje, gathers the best of her many stories set all over Europe, all written in Paris where Gallant has long lived. Mysterious, funny, insightful, and heartbreaking, these are tales of expatriates and exiles, wise children and straying saints. Together they compose a secret history, at once intimate and panoramic, of modern times.
