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 Gilchrists 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 Dudleys only daughter.
