it was amazing
Read in April, 2012

This is a famous book I had not read - it turns out to be a small volume that covers 3 short novels and the title work is the 3rd novel. The first novelette is Old Mortality and characters (major and minor) reappear in the title work. The second novelette is Noon Wine. Porter writes gritty stuff - you don't want to read her if you are not feeling upbeat. The best description I think could be written about dying from the viewpoint of the person dying is in Pale Horse, Pale Rider - another book which includes the flu epidemic that killed so many millions right after World War I. Porter's writing itself is overwhelming - she wowed me.
