[EAN: 9780670815524], [PU: Viking Penguin, New York], LITERATURE & FICTION - ROMANE ERZÄHLUNGEN LITTÉRATURE, Fiction|General, Fiction|Short Stories (single author), Brand Newin Fine DJ; Marfree, acidfree 1st US Ed; not written-in, underlined, club, remainder or ex-library. Fine/Fine. Mail SAMEDAY! ; 184 pages; Publishers Weekly: As evidenced in this provocative collection of short stories, Wiggins seems able to change mood and locale, voice and narrative point of view, with dazzling skill. These 14 tales have a fine variety, but the best are those that involve characters who speak in regional patois and idiosyncratic turns of phrase. In ""Ridin' Up Front with Carl and Marl, "" a trio of Southerners encounters a hardbitten photographer from Massachusetts who tells them, ""You people have no sense of what life's really like""; but she's wrong. ""The Gentleman's Arms"" takes place in England, where would-be lovers united after 20 years encounter a monumental let-down, and at the end, a poignant moment of insight. ""Stonewall Jackson's Wife"" herself is the ghostly narrator of that story, which surges with sadness. The narrator's colloquial speech places ""Insomnia"" squarely in the `80s; her wry, bitter voice is oddl.

Wiggins, Marianne:
Herself in Love and Other Stories - First edition

Hardcover, ID: 801922232

[EAN: 9780670815524], [PU: Viking, New York], FICTION SHORT STORIES SINGLE AUTHOR, Jacket, FIRST PRINTING. Acclaimed author's debut book of short stories. "Marianne Wiggins's stories defy description. They seduce, They tempt. They are hilarious. They ask the reader in, and then they take the reader captive. They are as different from each other in their setting, character, and style as P.G. Wodehouse is from Kafka, and yet each story bears the imprint of its author's wit and intelligence. Together, their surprise diversity bears witness to Marianne Wiggins's true talent. She has a different "voice" for every story, and the thirteeen stories of 'Herself in Love' constitute a roller-coaster ride through Wiggins Country-the scenery, of London and in the U.S., is breathtaking; the pace is swift and frightening; and the sense of imminent exhilaration or danger is terrifyingly sustained." 184 pages. Author Frederick Barthelme's DJ blurb states, "I'm glad to know that Marianne Wiggins is out there doing her own brand of rogue maintenance on the short story. It needs it. We need it." Crease to interior front flap of DJ.
