Comedy, allegory, and folklore are here. Subjects varying from childhood initiation, to spousal abuse, to race relations, to AIDS are here. Plots involving murder, romance, necrophilia, Shirley Temple dolls, kinfolk, and ghostly appearances are here. In brief, when you finish this collection your concept of Alabama writers. as well as your concept of women writers, will expand.
