Beasts of the Southern Wild and Other Stories by Doris Betts

Back in print at last, the nine beautifully crafted tales inBeasts of the Southern Wild and Other Storiesdisplay Doris Betts at the top of her form: compassionate, witty, and unforgettable.The Ugliest Pilgrim takes you into the adventures and into the heart of a disfigured young woman who has run away from her life in search of a better one. This award-winning story is the basis for the musicalViolet,which won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. In Hitchhiker, a wary secretary hitches a ride in a boat with a man hell-bent on saving fish; instead he saves her from the river -- and herself. And in the title story, Betts brilliantly captures the inner life of a teacher and writer struggling to control her classroom, her household, and her life.
