WCW, Collected Stories. Fifty-Two stories by the late, great William Carlos Williams.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyAssembling his 52 published short stories, this collection draws on Williams's experiences as a physician ministering to working-class immigrants. (June)
Library JournalThis is a reprint of the collection published in 1961 as The Farmer's Daughters. LJ's reviewer observed that "these are not short stories in the accepted technical sense of the word. Call them rather vignettes for some are less than two pages long, or even diagnoses for they reflect to a great extent the author's experiences as a practicing physician who has treated man not only as an object for the application of drugs but also as material for the work of art" (LJ 12/1/61). This edition also contains a new introduction by Sherwin B. Nuland, M.D., who offers a doctor's perspective on Williams. Essential for all libraries.
Kenneth Rexroth"So these prestite-odd stories are among the most precious possessions of the 20th-century in the new English. And when they come to ask, 'what were they like?' we can say, 'This is us.'" - A New Leader
Harvey Shapiro"These stories of a mind racing at top speed to touch and decipher." -- New York Times
