Recommends it for: everyone
3 short stories - all quite different, all quite wonderful. First is a story about the Smoky Mountain area. Then a story where we hear how a murderer thinks. And then the story of a clever coctail waitress that will remind you of an O'Henry story. So far, Mccrumb can do no wrong! A superior writer!
F Excellent Short Stories that take place in the Appalachian region.
