" Kay Boyle [February 19, 1902 - December 27, 1992] was an award-winning writer, educator, and political activist. She was one of America's finest literary stylists. Winner of two O. Henry Awards, two Guggenheim Fellowships and a National Endowment for the Arts lifetime achievement award. Kay Boyle published more than 40 books, including 14 novels, eight volumes of poetry, 11 collections of short fiction, three children's books, French to English translations and essays. An activist-writer, she lived for over twenty years in Europe [1920s-1940s] and was blacklisted during the McCarthy era. She championed integration and civil rights, advocated banning nuclear weapons, and American withdrawal from the Vietnam War." - wikipedia. 'The many readers who have followed Kay Boyle's fiction over the years in such magazines as The New Yorker, The Saturday Evening Post, and Harper's have well recognized the virtuosity with which she has juxtaposed universals of human experience against specific moments in contemporary history. The backdrops to these stories are as various as the changing milieux that have defined Kay Boyle's own remarkable life: Paris in the twenties, and then years later on the eve of invasion; Austria before -and after- the Anschluss; Germany under the Allied Armies of Occupation; Greenwich Village in the 1960s. Against these very different moral landscapes, Kay Boyle has caught people in private epiphanies of honor, horror, heroism, love. 'Fifty Stories' stands as a remarkable testament to Kay Boyle's lifework: a volume and a life dedicated to the craft of fiction." - dust jacket flaps. "One of the finest short story writers of our time." - David Daiches. Book and dust jacket appear in fine, unread condition., Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1980
