Telling Sonny

Elizabeth Gauffreau

$22.30

My primary motivation in writing Telling Sonny was to tell the story of "a heart in conflict with itself" in a series of fully-rendered settings, where nothing is quite what it seems.

Aspects of the Novel

E. M. Forster

$14.99 $13.79

The author of such acclaimed novels as A Passage to India and A Room with a View provides a witty and engaging discussion of the art of the novel: characterization, setting, plot, and thematic elements, including prophesy and fantasy.

The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty

Eudora Welty

$18.99 $17.47

The reader is immediately drawn into a fully-rendered world with compelling characters as real as our next-door neighbors.

The Complete Stories

Flannery O'Connor

$18.00 $16.56

In these stories, nothing is as it seems--not the protagonists, the antagonists, nor their morals and beliefs.

Cathedral

Raymond Carver

$16.00 $14.72

This short story collection is a tour de force of understatement and the tragedy of the mundane.

As I Lay Dying

William Faulkner

$14.95 $13.75

In this short novel, William Faulkner portrays "the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself" in a way no one had done before and no one has done since. There are buzzards involved.
