Product Details


“Elegant, mysterious and satisfying.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Gurganus, a storyteller in the grand tradition…can tell his stories as well as anyone alive in our time.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Ranging from family memoirs to historical pieces, from satire to surrealism, White People celebrates American culture in all its humanistic vibrancy and grotesque contradictions.  Blending trenchant satire with outrageous humor, Gurganus’s stories recall both Mark Twain and Flannery O’Connor.”–Chicago Tribune

“Each story is a gem.”–San Francisco Chronicle
