[EAN: 9780345419101], [PU: Ballantine Books June 23, 1997, New York, NY], AMERICAN POPULAR FICTION CONTEMPORARY FICTION: THE SOUTH ENGLISH LITERATURE COLLECTIBLE PAPERBACKS MODERN FIRST EDITIONS SHORT STORIES WOMEN'S 0345419103, Fiction|General, First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good++ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: just a touch of wear to the extremities; mild rubbing to wrapper covers; the pages have tanned somewhat, due to aging; binding square and secure; text clean. Remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 206pp. First published in 1990, the Mass Market Paperback appeared in 1991. This is the First Trade Paperback Edition. In Smith's accurately portrayed South (Fair and Tender Ladies ; Cakewalk), class consciousness, tradition and a strong sense of place (anybody not born in the South is a "foreigner") are of vital importance. Her characters, in blue-collar or the lowest of white-collar jobs, live mundane lives illuminated by flashes of yearning. With few exceptions, the women in these nine short stories have seen one or more marriages collapse; in two of the tales, the protagonists are still stunned by their husbands' departures. These are women trained to be gallant and to carry on; to take care of elderly parents and be polite at all costs. On the other hand, they are inflexible in their desire to preserve the status quo, and are surprised when life runs away from them. Only one character dares to make a break from orderly existence; this is the male protagonist of the touching "Intensive Care"--who leaves his wife and children and marries a waitress. Smith's stories gain significance from her insights and the graceful, effortless prose that places her characters firmly in their regional--yet universal--milieu.

Title:

Me and My Baby View the Eclipse

ISBN:

0345419103

"Extremely powerful . . . ME AND MY BABY VIEW THE ECLIPSE is about the striving and the secret nobility of people who live in a small-town American South. In these stories -- thank heaven -- not everything fits: they are loose, they are sometimes awkward, but just about every one shines with revelation and awe in the face of momentary greatness and tragedy . . . . Nearly every one of the stories could move a reader to tears, for in almost every one of them there is a moment of vision, or love, or unclothed wonder than transforms something plain into something transcendent." -- The New York Times Book Review "Sparkles like diamonds . . . 'Tongues of Fire' is, quite simply, one of the best short stories I've ever read." -- Chicago Tribune
