Beautiful Girl

A collection of stories by

"Nobody writes better about falling in love than Alice Adams. . . . How can one person know so much?" --The New York Times Book Review

With appearances in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and Redbook, as well as in the O. Henry Award collections for eight consecutive years, Alice Adams had established herself as a master craftsman of the short story when she published her first collection.

Her well-honed skill is on abundant display in this collection of 16 wonderful stories that encompass a wide range of mood and situation. All are linked in the delicacy and ease of their unfolding, and in the certitude of their revelations, and in the consistency of their theme: Love.

Included are "Winter Rain," "Roses, Rhododendron," "Home is Where," "Jealous Husband."
