?Short stories and some short novels are close to poetry?with the fewest words they capture the essence of a situation, of a human being. ItOCOs like trying to pin down the eternal moment.OCO ?Gina BerriaultGina Berriault was one of the great, rare masters of short fiction. With commendable restraint and economy, she delivered stories that contain entire worlds inhabited by a range of characters thrown into all kinds of unsettling predicaments.

As a short story writer she had a gift for tapping into the emotions of love, hope, and grief, and for making them palpable within her narratives. No two of her stories are alike, except for in the inevitable disquiet the reader feels in their wake, the exquisite unease that remains at the end of such acclaimed tales as ?The Cove, OCO ?The Stone Boy, OCO and many others.Now, in this compelling posthumous collection, BerriaultOCOs astonishing short fiction once again proves that her position as one of AmericaOCOs best storytellers remains unchallenged.
