About the Author

Elizabeth Spencer is the author of nine novels and novellas and three other short story collections. She was brought up in Mississippi, where tales of the Civil War lingered and segregation seemed permanent, during the Depression. Spencer’s wanderings took her to Italy in 1953, to Montreal in 1958, and back to the South in 1986. She died in 2019.
