Ellen Gilchrist

Ellen Gilchrist

Collected Stories

“Compulsively readable” (San Diego Union-Tribune) and “funny, slyly insightful” (New York Times Book Review) short stories from Ellen Gilchrist, the National Book Award-winning author who “deserves to be celebrated among the first rank of American writers” (Baltimore Sun).

Suffused with wit, irony, and the bittersweet complications of love, the writings of Ellen Gilchrist occupy a unique place in American fiction. From early novels such as The Annunciation to recent story collections such as Flight of Angels, Gilchrist writes with a keen insight into the foibles of human nature, while narrative the off-kilter lives of her delightfully eccentric and unforgettable characters.

The stories in this volume, selected by Gilchrist herself, constitute the best — and best-loved — the work of one of the finest storytellers in modern southern literature.
