Four of the exceptional short stories that won Katherine Anne Porter both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. In The Cracked Looking Glass, Rosaleen's dream and stories collide with the gray reality of life on a remote Connecticut farm. For 9-year-old Miranda, The Grave, is her grandfather's empty one, now just a hole in the ground. But the rabbit her brother shoots reveals the mystery of death...and life. The tale of a spell cast by a mean-spirited New Orleans fancy house Madam is related by a maid to her new employer in Magic. In Flowering Judas, a young foreign woman aiding a revolutionary group in Mexico finds denial no match for her growing sense of moral responsibility. Download and start listening now!

    " So why are short stories so universally depressing? Why no uplift? I had to skip a few of these, I admit it. They are indeed very beautifully written. I think she got the national book award for these but I'm not sure. Well worth reading. "

    " Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1966. I really enjoyed some of the stories in the collection, but others were difficult to read and follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn | 3/24/2010

    " The Jilting of Granny Weatherall (published 1930) is the short story I most admire. "

    " I will never even pretend to be a writer after reading "Holiday." "

    " Read this one in an American Lit. class at USU. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 7/10/2009

    " A great short story writer. Some people get "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" in high school, but her stories about the Mexican revolution are probably my favorite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 11/13/2008

    " What an amazing writer - and so ahead of her time. From 'Pale Horse, Pale Rider' to 'Maria Concepcion' to 'Holiday' to 'The Grave', the suck-you-in storytelling and dead-on insight into human nature are so impressive. Highly recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maritess | 11/11/2008

    " Some genius stories, some not, but when the stories are good, they are phoenomenal. (sp!) "
