Father Cawder dreams about the arrival of the carnival and the hubbub it will bring, but he cannot anticipate the heated tragedy of lovers Stella and Diamond, or the harsh judgment of his neighbor Mrs. Girard. With characters that leap off the page and stay with you long after the final lines, The Encounter is a shattering Southern novel and a landmark work of literature, now back in print for a new audience.
