Summary
For the first time, the complete stories of the master chronicler of tradition and transformation in the twentieth-century South. Born and raised in Tennessee, Peter Taylor was the great chronicler of the American Upper South, capturing its gossip and secrets, its divided loyalties and morally complicated legacies in tales of pure-distilled brilliance. Now, for his centennial year, the Library of America and acclaimed short story writer Ann Beattie present an unprecedented two-volume edition of Taylor's complete short fiction, all fifty-nine of the stories published in his lifetime in the order in which they were composed. This first volume offers twenty-nine early masterpieces, including such classics as "A Spinster's Tale," "What You Hear from 'Em'," "Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time" and "Miss Leonora When Last Seen." As a special feature, an appendix in the first volume gathers three stories Taylor published as an undergraduate that show the early emergence of his singular style and sensibility
