Internationally celebrated as among the finest stories written in English today, Mavis Gallant's fiction offers a penetrating and powerful vision of contemporary human relationships in Europe and North America.

The Moslem Wife and Other Stories brings together eleven of Gallant's best stories from over three decades. These embody the beauty, irony, and compassion of a master writer's fictional universe. Amid the complex perceptions of the past that haunt her characters, Gallant deploys her sharp comic eye to superb effect: in the figures who move through her stories, we catch troubling, fleeting glimpses of our own lives.

Selected and with an afterword by Mordecai Richler.

An awesome, challenging, and touching collection of stories. Sometimes there were insights that just flowed along into one's mind without even realizing it (like with Will Cather). My favorites were "When we were nearly young", and the last two.
