The Drowning: And Other Stories

3.86  ·  Rating details ·  7 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Edward J. Delaney, much published and honored, is a gifted, versatile story teller in the tradition of writers as varied as Ethan Canin and William Trevor. His first collection, long overdue, brings together stories notable for their moral intensity, quietly controlled language, and narrative range. A fine book by an immensely talented writer.
Paperback, 160 pages
Published January 29th 2000 by Carnegie-Mellon University Press (first published March 1999)

This was a collection of short stories written by a professor at my college... I was really excited to meet an actual author, but I didn't really like the book and when the time came to talk about writing with him, I didn't say much...
