Pick up any volume of stories by the Nobel laureate and you will find quiet excellence, compassion, and precision. If you love life as well as books, you must read them all — and then read them again. This collection contains the iconic story "Miles City, Montana," about a family trip that climaxes in a near-tragedy. It is one of the best stories about motherhood ever written.
