The New York stories of Elizabeth Hardwick” selected by Darryl Pinckney

“The earlier stories in this collection are wonderful. The power of them isn’t evident in any one line but gathers slowly, often sneaking in under cover of irony. The characters – a mix of upper-class intellectuals and down-at-heel bohemians – might present well to each other, but Elizabeth Hardwick is not fooled. Concisely, and without sentiment, she shows the knife twisting in the heart of each tale, and forces her cast to confront it.”
