Summary :

These 31 stories span a literary career of more than 50 years and serve as a true testament to "one of America's most distinguished men of letters."--The Boston Globe.

Here are tales of young love and older wisdom; of the order and consistency of the natural world; and of the chaos, contradictions and continuities of the human being. There is sweet love in a berry patch, there are bittersweet reunions, trials and tests of manhood and friendship, and the sometimes foolish and impractical yet noble dreams of man. Each of these stories embody some of the best virtues and values to be found in contemporary fiction.
