Love And Death, The Complete Stories Of Vardis Fisher


Other works by VARDIS FISHER

Publication: Doubleday & Company, 1959, Garden City

First Edition. Cloth, 211pp. An excellent series of short stories by a master storyteller. "These remarkable short stories by Vardis Fisher reveal, with subtlety and compassion, the innermost depths of human feeling. Set in Idaho's rugged, beautiful Antelope country, they offer an infinite variety of character and theme and present both a universal and a microscopic view of life bawdy, passionate, tragic, filled with wonder and sudden laughter. The long-buried hungers stirring in the lonely spinster schoolteacher of "The Storm;" the malicious cruelty of a group of teenagers as they "charivari" a helpless young bridal couple; the innocent patriotism among "good" Americans in "The Odyssey of a Hero;" the chilling horror of "The Mother;" the touching irony of "Joe Burt's Wife" whatever their mood, these brilliant stories again mark Vardis Fisher as one of America's most perceptive and accomplished writers." Tiny bump to top fore corners, else a fine copy. Dust jacket lightly rubbed with a .75" closed-tear to top edge of back panel.
