about this book

"These stories will last," said Raymond Carver of Shiloh And Other Stories when it was first published, and almost two decades later this stunning fiction debut and winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award has become a modern American classic. In “Shiloh,” Bobbie Ann Mason introduces us to her western Kentucky people and the lives they forge for themselves amid the ups and downs of contemporary American life. She poignantly captures the growing pains of the New South in the lives of her characters as they come to terms with feminism, R-rated movies, and video games.

"Bobbie Ann Mason is one of those rare writers who, by concentrating their attention on a few square miles of native turf, are able to open up new and surprisingly wide worlds for the delighted reader,"–Robert Towers, The New York Review of Books

"Her first collection shows not only how good she can be but how consistently good she remains... Not a single page lags... not one among 16 stories is less than impressive."–The New York Times Book Review

"Mason is a full-fledged master of the short story... Her first collection is a treasure."–Anne Tyler
