Summary (From the publisher):

Witty and playful satirist, incisive yet forgiving observer of failed aspirations and misguided longings, Dawn Powell is a literary rediscovery of rare importance. Powell - a vital part of literary Greenwich Village from the 1920s through the 1960s - chronicled two very different worlds: the small-town Ohio where she grew up and the sophisticated Manhattan where she lived for nearly fifty years. Now the Library of America gather's the best of Powell's eccentric, often hilarious, sometimes deeply moving fiction. Dance Night, her personal favorite among her works, and Come Back to Sorrento evoke the sights and sounds, the frustrations and longings of small-town life. With the sparkling Turn, Magic Wheel, Powell reinvented herself as comic observer of evanescent joys and heartbreaks of "the city of perpetual distraction." Like the screwball comedy Angels on Toast and A Time to be Born, it teems with a cast of writers and artists, show people, businessmen, and hopeful hangers-on whom clearly Powell loves often despite themselves. A companion volume, Novels 1944-1962, gathers the greatest of Dawn Powell's later work.
