From the Publisher
Annotation These 15 brief stories by a Montana writer are set mainly in the American West. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
Editors Note A debut collection of fifteen short tales includes "Four Lean Hounds, ca.1976," in which three friends mourn a comrade's death; "Ranch Girl," in which a college-bound woman considers her future; and "A Stakes Horse," in which a woman struggles with racetrack setbacks and her father's cancer.
Editors Note 2 A debut collection of fifteen short tales includes "Four Lean Hounds, ca.1976," in which three friends mourn a comrade's death; "Ranch Girl," in which a college-bound woman considers her future; and "A Stakes Horse," in which a woman struggles with racetrack setbacks and her father's cancer. Reprint. 17,500 first printing.
Editors Note 3 Lean and controlled in their narration, abundant and moving in their effects, Maile Meloy's stories introduce a striking talent. Most are set in the modern American West, made vivid and unexpected in Meloy's unsentimental vision; others take us to Paris, wartime London, and Greece, with the same remarkable skill and intuition. In "Four Lean Hounds, ca. 1976," two couples face a complicated grief when one of the four dies. In "Ranch Girl," the college-bound daughter of a ranch foreman must choose which adult world she wants to occupy. In "A Stakes Horse," a woman confronts risk and loss at the racetrack and at home. And in "Aqua Boulevard" -- winner of the 2001 Aga Khan Prize for Fiction -- an elderly Parisian confronts his mortality. Meloy's command of her characters' voices is breathtaking; their fears and desires are deftly illuminated. Smart, surprising, and evocative, Meloy's brilliantly observed stories fully engage the mind and heart.
