Willa Cather was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American author who achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, works such as O Pioneers!, My Antonia, and The Song of the Lark. In 1923 she was awarded the Pulitzer for One of Ours (1922), a novel set during World War I. This book features a collection of Cather's short stories, including Peter, On the Divide, Eric Hermannson's Soul, The Sentimentality of William Tavener, The Namesake, The Enchanted Bluff, The Joy of Nelly Deane, The Bohemian Girl, Consequences, The Bookkeeper's Wife, Ardessa, and Her Boss. A collection of reviews and essays by Cather are also included. Authors covered by the reviews include Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Henry James, Harold Frederic, Kate Chopin, Stephen Crane, and Frank Norris. Cather's essay "On the Art of Fiction" wraps up this fascinating collection by one of America's best authors.
