New York, NY : Ecco, 
xv, 175 pages ; 21 cm.
A never-before-published collection of stories from Kathleen Collins.
These short stories, discovered only recently, highlight Collins' masterfully blend of the personal issues-- race, gender, family, and sexuality-- with the ordinary moments that shape our lives. Also known as an artist and filmmaker, her stories create full-bodied men, women, and children who justify their lives while integrating the African American experience without becoming symbols or token images.
