DRESSING UP FOR THE CARNIVAL: A Collection of Stories

by Shields, Carol

Condition: As New/Fine


New York, New York, U.S.A.: Viking Press, 2000. First American Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. By the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of THE STONE DIARIES. As new, unread copy, in fine, mylar-protected dust jacket. L6


In Dressing Up for the Carnival , Carol Shields distills her characteristic wisdom, elegance, and insouciant humor in twenty-two luminous stories. A wealth of surprises and contrasts, this collection ranges from the lyricism of "Weather," in which a couple's life is thrown into chaos when the National Association of Meteorologists goes on strike, to the swampy sexuality of "Eros," in which a room in a Parisian hotel on the verge of ruin is the catalyst for passion, to the brave confidence of "A Scarf"-new for this collection-which chronicles the realities of a fledging author's book tour. Playful, graceful, acutely observed, and generous of spirit, these stories will delight her devoted fans and win her new converts as well.
