About This Book
There is a special joy in seeing a virtuoso at work, achieving the fulfillment of his art. In a prodigious literary career, demonstrating a virtually limitless range, George Garrett’s dazzling versatility has won high esteem and critical acclaim for his novels, plays, poetry, biography, and short fiction.  Now, as testimony to George Garrett’s vivid storytelling powers, An Evening’s Performance: New and Selected Short Stories encompasses some of his best work of the past thirty years.
 
Widely admired for his masterworks of Elizabethan times, Garrett’s stories here are contemporary, colloquial, humorous, bittersweet, deeply felt without sentimentality. Garrett’s gift for language, his forthright and compelling style touch the heart and ignite the senses, as he gives us stories of war and uneasy peace; of soldiers and movie-makers; of families, ghosts, preachers, teachers, and religious conmen. Stories that create a vision quintessentially American, yet universal in spirit.
