Product Details


"Mason is a full-fledged master of the short story."
–Anne Tyler, about Shiloh and Other Stories

"Count on it…Bobbie Ann Mason is going to be renowned as one of America’s finest writers. Clear Springs, her recent memoir, was a deserving Pulitzer finalist, but perhaps she shines most in crafting short stories."
–Jeff Guinn, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Bobbie Ann Mason’s genius only grows stronger and wiser and funnier with every new book, and Zigzagging Down a Wild Trail is my absolute favorite so far. What an ear she has for the telling phrase, what an eye for the heartbreaking detail. These new stories are stunning."
–Josephine Humphreys

"I love the way Bobbie Ann Mason writes, the way she brings her people to life in so few words. I’ve been a fan since Shiloh.
–Elmore Leonard

"In the dictionary under "story", it should just say, "See Bobbie Ann Mason." I will follow her down any trail she blazes."
–Roy Blount, Jr.

"No writer in America can match Bobbie Ann Mason at chronicling the dizzying changes in our culture. We find each of her varied and interesting characters zigzagging down the wild and surprising trail of their lives to arrive at a vivid moment of clarity, a moment that pierces the heart. These are stories to savor."
–Lee Smith
