Praise

“One of the most brilliant story writers in the language.”
The New Yorker
 
“A terrifyingly good writer.”
—Margaret Atwood
 
“Gallant’s talent is as versatile and witty as it is somber and empathetic.”
—John Updike
 
“Funny, exacting, and stern . . . Gallant’s chronicles of internal and external exile are a fitting tribute to a diasporic century.”
The Guardian (London)

“Mavis Gallant has a technical daring and an innovative freedom that, as in a painting by Velásquez, remain hidden unless you look closely, pay attention, and at the same time manage to surrender to the mystery of art . . . She places a huge amount of faith in her reader’s intelligence, a faith which demands and rewards careful reading. But she’s also very funny, and a great deal of fun. Her stories are full of satisfying reverses and breathtaking passages of dazzlingly precise, virtuosic writing.”
—from the new Introduction by Francine Prose
