Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Collected Stories
Wallace Stegner


In a literary career spanning more than fifty years, Wallace Stegner, winner of a Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, has created a remarkable record of the history and culture of twentieth-century America. These thirty-one stories demonstrate why he is acclaimed as one of America’s master storytellers – tales of young love and older wisdom, of the order and consistency of the natural world and the chaos, contradictions and continuities of the human being.
