From the gothic Old South to revolutionary Mexico, few writers have evoked such a multitude of worlds, both exterior and interior, as powerfully as Katherine Anne Porter (1890-1980). Winning the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, this 1965 collection gathers all of Porter's short stories, including "Pale Horse, Pale Rider," where a young woman recalls her childhood as she lies in a fever during the 1918 influenza epidemic, and "Noon Wine," a haunting story of tragedy and scandal on a small dairy farm in Texas. This volume includes the collections Flowering Judas and The Leaning Tower, as well as four additional stories.
