The Troll Garden and Selected Stories
This collection of Willa Cather's stories--her first book of fiction--is as readable and relevant today as when it was first published. Each story is different, but all of them share as their subject the role of the artist in American society. The passions and pretensions, the angst and ambitions of artists, pseudo-artists, aficionados, and dilettantes are portrayed with style and subtlety by a writer who was just beginning to gather her formidable powers. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
