The selection of the best stories from a lifetime of fictions by the acknowledged master of his craft.

Winner of Pushcart’s Editors Book Award, Twenty Stories is cause for a grand celebration. Few short story writers have received the acclaim offered to Jack Driscoll over the decades. Here he has selected twenty of his best fictions including the classics “Prowlers” and “That Story” both winners of The Pushcart Prize.

The qualities that make his work indelible — his deeply intimate relationship with nature and people, his natural lyricism, the authentic way his credible narratives earn their mystery, all are here in this beautiful collection, the culmination of a master writer’s lifetime.
