Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the centennial of William Maxwell?s birth, here is the second volume in a two- volume collected edition that reveals the full range of an extraordinary literary voice, a voice that John Updike has called ?one of the wisest in American fiction . . . as well as one of the kindest.? In Later Novels and Stories, Maxwell deepens his connection to his signature subject matter even as he broadens his canvas. The Ch�teau (1961) describes the most subtle and bittersweet encounter of American naivet� and Old World mystery since Henry James. So Long, See You TomorrowBillie Dyer (1992) and eleven other works of short fiction? some never before collected. The volume concludes with forty brief ?improvisations?? fairy tales Maxwell wrote for his wife?and the essay ?Nearing Ninety? (1997), his moving valediction to a lifetime of reading and storytelling.

Synopsis:

In the latter half of his literary career, Maxwell deepened his connection to his signature subject matter--small-town family life in the early 20th century--and broadened his canvas to include new places and characters. This volume of his later works features 40 brief stories and the essay Nearing Ninety.
