The Rose Garden: Short Stories
by Maeve Brennan
From the author of The Springs Of Affection comes a second and final collection of 20 masterly short stories from the glory days of The New Yorker. Mostly set in her native Dublin, Ireland, but many set in and around her adopted Manhattan, the stories center around satirical scenes from suburban life.
"Reading Maeve Brennan is like watching a master jeweler construct a ticking watch from an array of tiny, inanimate parts.
--Linda Barrett Osborne, New York Times Book Review
"So good that I kept putting the book down to savor a description or perfect phrase, to hug myself with malicious joy, and to put off the evil hour when the stories would be done.
" Paperback 320 pages - 5" x 8" - (4/01)
--Katherine A. Powers, Boston Sunday Globe
