A classic work that has charmed generations of readers, this collection assembles Carson McCullers's best stories, including her beloved novella The Ballad of the Sad Cafe. A haunting tale of a human triangle that culminates in an astonishing brawl, the novella introduces readers to Miss Amelia, a formidable southern woman whose cafe serves as the town's gathering place. Among other fine works, the collection also includes Wunderkind, McCullers's first published story written when she was only seventeen about a musical prodigy who suddenly realizes she will not go on to become a great pianist. Newly reset and available for the first time in a handsome trade paperback edition, The Ballad of the Sad Cafe is a brilliant study of love and longing from one of the South's finest writers.

Edward Albee

Edward Albee was an American playwright known for works such as The Zoo Story, The Sandbox, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, A Delicate Balance and Three Tall Women.

Some critics have argued that some of his work constitutes an American variant of what Martin Esslin identified and named the Theatre of the Absurd.

Three of his plays won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and two of his other works won the Tony Award for Best Play.

Later in life, Albee continued to experiment in works such as The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? (2002).
