Enjoy these stand-alone short stories about a boy growing up in an Idaho farm town in mid-century. See how that town influenced its younger citizens and prepared them for life outside of its influence. Enjoy the humor, love and attitude that could only have come from small-town America during an era that is no more. It was a time before animals had rights-before anything political was correct-and before thick skins became thin. It was a time of slide rules, hula-hoops, and church keys. It was a time when candy bars were big and the national debt was small. It was a time when first date, first kiss, and first time occurred on three different nights. Close your eyes and pick a story or read them in order. Jog your memory or make a new one. It doesn't matter. These stories will move you!

The Stories Of J F Powers

Hailed by Frank O’Connor as one of “the greatest living storytellers,” J. F. Powers, who died in 1999, stands with Eudora Welty, Flannery O’Connor, and Raymond Carver among the authors who have given the short story an unmistakably American cast. In three slim collections of perfectly crafted stories, published over a period of some thirty years and brought together here in a single volume for the first time, Powers wrote about many things: baseball and jazz, race riots and lynchings, the Great Depression, and the flight to the suburbs. His greatest subject, however—and one that was uniquely his—was the life of priests in Chicago and the Midwest. Powers’s thoroughly human priests, who include do-gooders, gladhanders, wheeler-dealers, petty tyrants, and even the odd saint, struggle to keep up with the Joneses in a country unabashedly devoted to consumption. These beautifully written, deeply sympathetic, and very funny stories are an unforgettable record of the precarious balancing act that is American life.
