Selected by the author, this anthology presents Chappell's work in a variety of forms--one complete novel, eight short stories, poems, a portion of four novels, and an Afterword. The Los Angeles Times wrote, "Not since James Agee and Robert Penn Warren has a Southern writer displayed such masterful versatility".
