In this extraordinary collection of stories, Bobbie Ann Mason slips quietly into the lives of her western Kentucky people, lifting up their tangled aspirations and buried disappointments. She has a delicate but steady grasp of the predicaments and ironies and pathos of people raised in traditional rural society trying to cope with shopping malls and agribusiness, TV evangelism and women's lib. And in reading about her school bus driver who wishes to be a disc jockey, her disabled trucker who builds his dream house from Lincoln logs, her young divorcees and bewildered parents, one has the feeling of seeing our own perplexed society come suddenly into view. Like Type O blood, Bobbie Ann Mason's fiction can be given to almost everyone.
