Here are nineteen stories that explore her signature themes: wounded adolescence, loneliness in marriage, and the tragicomedy of life in the South.

"These August afternoons--when your shift is finished, there is absolutely nothing to do. You might as well walk down to the Forks Falls Highway and listen to the chain gang." From Ballad of the Sad Cafe
