Petry is the writer we have been waiting for; hers are the stories we need to fully illuminate the questions of our moment, while also offering a page-turning good time. Ann Petry, the woman, had it all, and so does her insightful, prescient and unputdownable prose. Tayari Jones,New York Times Book ReviewFrom the author of the bestselling novelThe Street,comes a powerful collection of stories that captures a remarkably diverse panorama of African American experience in the 1950s and 1960s.A small-town pharmacists decision to take a day off leads his wife to an agonizing encounter with the police. A retired Black college professor teaching at a predominately white high school is kidnapped and forced to witness an unthinkable horror. A young Black girl watches her aunts suitors threaten her familys wellbeing, with repercussions that reverberate for decades. Ann Petry wrote these and the other extraordinary stories in this collectionover half a century ago, but the problems they interrogate still exist today, incisively uncovering the consequences of Americas pervasive racism, while telling timeless stories of everyday lives, of aspiration, frustration, and love. Miss Muriel and Other Stories is a delicate, unflinching probe into African-American existence (Boston Globe) from one of the most gifted writers of the twentieth century.Originally published between 1945 and 1971, Petrys stories are a delicate, unflinching probe into African-American existence (Boston Globe) and an assertion of her status as one of the most gifted writers of the twentieth century.Ive recently had my brain re-wired by Ann Petry, and its that exhilarating feeling of falling in love with one of your lifetime writers for the first time.
