PRIZE STORIES OF 1948 by Herschell Brickell


Email this review


The annual collection, selected from magazine appearances, which hits a less esoteric note in its sources and contents than the Martha Foley. From Harper's, the Atlantic, Mademoiselle, Charm, the New Yorker, to the lesser, little reviews, come some well known names in the field of the novel- Truman Capote, Wallace Stegner, Elizabeth Janeway, Caroline Gordon, Christopher La Farge, come names less widely known. The choices are diffuse in their subject, locale, treatment, from the chi-chi to the realistic, and with no introduction available at this time there is no indication as to the prizes. The Saddle is a hardhitting story of a boy's hatred; the La Farge is a nice bit about married love; Pico Never Forgets provides a slick, light touch... For popular tastes.
