Classic short stories. Warm evocative launguage that is homespun and sincere.

From Amazon.com:
This anthology of nine stories and the essay, "The Novel Demeuble," is a handy assemblage of Cather at her short best. Containing the frequently reprinted "Sculptor's Funeral," "Paul's Case," and "Neighbour Rosicky," it also includes some less well known but equally good stories ("The Bohemian Girl," "Old Mrs. Harris"). In the current literary stock market, Cather's shares have remained steadily blue chip, having weathered 50 years with an elegance of craft and a sustained dignity. Her consistent focus on character--in the literary, psychological, and moral senses of the term--is richly evidenced in these selections. A serviceable introduction by the editor makes this publication a useful entryway into the world of Cather's fiction.
