A storyteller in the very best southern tradition, Lee Smith pens unexpected plots vibrant with luminous prose. Her powerful short stories in Me and My Baby View the Eclipse capture those extraordinary moments in everyday life when greatness and tragedy shimmer through the surface. This collection was chosen as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

Richly satisfying, each tale portrays ordinary people meeting trouble head-on with courage and compassion: a teenaged girl coping with her father's nervous breakdown; a housewife filling her humdrum days with an eccentric lover; and a single mother struggling to hang onto her wayward son. With narrators Linda Stephens' and Tom Stechschulte's brilliant performances, these lyrical stories, made to be read aloud, will linger long in your memory.

The collection includes: Bob, a Dog; Mom; Life on the Moon; Tongues of Fire; Dreamers; The Interpretation of Dreams; Desire on Domino Island; Intensive Care; and Me and My Baby View the Eclipse.

    " This book has a great Steel Magnolias quality about it; it would be a good collection to have on hand if you were in a bad mood and needed a pick-me-up. My favorites were Life on the Moon, Tongues of Fire, and Intensive Care. "

    " Another spectacular look into the lives of small town southerners from the author of Oral History. Stories of despair, made transcendental. I loved it so much I already lent it to someone to try and convert them to Lee Smith. One of the best short stories I have ever read are in this collection. "
