I, Rhoda Manning, Go Hunting with My Daddy

And Other Stories
By Ellen Gilchrist (Trade Paperback, 2003)
With all the poignancy, hilarity, and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her fiction, Ellen Gilchrist introduces a gallery of unforgettable characters-Southern women and men whose off-kilter lives are delicately revealed by the author's keen and forgiving gaze. This jubilantly acclaimed collection affirms anew why, as the Washington Post puts it, 'Ellen Gilchrist should be declared a national treasure.' - Since winning the National Book Award for Victory Over Japan in 1985, Gilchrist has established a large and devoted readership. - Rhoda Manning, one of Gilchrist's most beloved recurring characters, returns in several of these stories-as a child, as a divorced mother of three sons, and as an older woman who recalls the curse and blessing of being Big Dudley's only daughter.
