    Winner of a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize • Includes “Pale Horse, Pale Rider” set during the flu epidemic of 1918 

     

    From the gothic Old South to revolutionary Mexico, few writers have evoked such a multitude of worlds, both exterior and interior, as powerfully as Katherine Anne Porter. This collection gathers together the best of her award-winning short fiction, including “Pale Horse, Pale Rider,” where a young woman lies in a fever during the influenza epidemic, her childhood memories mingling with fears for her boyfriend on his way to war, and “Noon Wine,” a haunting story of tragedy and scandal on a small dairy farm in Texas. 

     

    This volume includes the collections Flowering Judas, Pale Horse, Pale Rider, and The Leaning Tower, as well as four stories not available elsewhere in book form.
