Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trash, Allison's landmark collection, laid the groundwork for her critically acclaimed Bastard Out of Carolina, the National Book Award finalist that was hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "simply stunning...a wonderful work of fiction by a major talent." In addition to Allison's classic stories, this new edition of Trash features "Stubborn Girls and Mean Stories," an introduction in which Allison discusses the writing of Trash and "Compassion," a never-before-published short story.

Review:

"With a keen feel for the languid rhythms of Southern speech, Allison masterfully suspends the reader between voyeurism and empathy, breathing life into a vast body of symbolic feminine imagery." Publishers Weekly
