JACKPOT by Erskine Caldwell


Email this review


This collection of 75 short stories includes nine new ones, and the balance are drawn from his other collections. Each story has a preface by the author, giving his appraisal, the origins of the story, comments on craftsmanship, attitudes, etc. Sometimes merely in a sentence -- sometimes longer. These prefaces are cocky, revealing, entertaining and personal, and provide fresh interest in a good collection.
