The Widow's Mite and Other Stories by Ferrol Sams

In Ferrol Sam's Georgia, there are Southern eccentrics and Southern tragedies, scatterbrained spinsters and coldhearted husbands. In the title story, the young widow Higbee teaches the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Faceville a hilarious lesson about tithing. Young Mamie Kate learns about "Fulfillment" when she sits on Miss Addie's front porch and pretends not to listen to the adult conversation. In "Porphyria's Lover," a scheming bisexual's double life brings catastrophe and death. And the "Big Star Woman" plans to sue her friend Dr. Glass after the operation she requested to improve her sex life has an unexpectedly tragic effect on her marriage.

Through these tales of everyday life and death in the South, Ferrol Sams, one of America's most beloved storytellers, illuminates the human mind and the human spirit.
