Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of
the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. A family sets
out on a road trip in the American South. The grandmother suggests they
change course in order to avoid The Misfit, an escaped convict who's
reportedly heading towards Florida. But when their car turns over in a
ditch, who should they flag down for help but the very man whose picture
they recognise from the paper . . . Flannery O'Connor's famous fifties
story evokes heat and dust, family and feuding, God and grace - and is
utterly uncompromising in its brutality. Bringing together past, present
and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium
of collectable work.
