About the Author

Willa Cather (1873-1947) was born in Back Creek Valley, Virginia. In 1883, Cather moved with her family to Nebraska, which became the inspiration for her bestselling novels: My Antonia, O Pioneers!, and the 1923 Pulitzer Prize-winning One of Ours. In 1906 she moved to NYC to work for McClure's. Cather lived in Greenwich Village until her death. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) was born in Rouen, France, where he resided until moving to Paris to study law. In 1844, Flaubert's studies ended due to what could have been epilepsy. He then traveled before settling in Croisset, where he composed his most famous works, including Madame Bovary, A Sentimental Education, and Three Tales. Mary Gordon (1949- ) is best known for her memoirs, literary criticism, and novels, including: Final Payments, The Company of Women, Men and Angels, and The Other Side. Gordon was born in Far Rockaway, New York and studied at Barnard College. She earned her MA at Syracuse University. Gordon is currently the McIntosh Professor of English at Barnard College.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
the review is for the Willa Cather short story alone. I bought the volume specifically for that short story. "Old Mrs Harris" is profound in a subtle, old-fashioned way. Cather doesn't pound the reader with high volume character depiction but rather reveals each character slowly and gently. There are surprises along the way and wistfulness and a bit of everyday tragedy along with everyday success.
