Shiloh And Other Stories

" The stories in Bobbie Ann Mason's remarkable collection read like poetic transcriptions of day-to-day life. With her keen eye and ear for late twentieth-century popular culture, Mason can render a photograph of a brightly lit supermarket or a bit of wisdom from the Donahue show. This special edition of a beloved local author's work includes a new foreword by George Ella Lyon, Kentucky writer and friend of the author.


"One of those rare writers who, by concentrating their attention on a few square miles of native turf, are able to turn up new and surprisingly wide worlds for the delighted reader."—New York Review of Books

"Her first collection shows not only how good she can be but how consistently good she remains. . . .Not a single page lags. . . not one among sixteen stories is less than impressive."—New York Times Book Review

"Will keep you fascinated and guessing over the course of the whole book."—Rockland (ME) Courier-Gazette
