The seven stories in this volume were written during the ascending and perhaps most triumphant years of Willa Cather's career, the period during which she published nine books, including My Antonia, A Lost Lady, and Death Comes for the Archbishop. For the most part ironic in tone, these stories are, as Bernice Slote observes, bound by the geometrics of urban life-streets and offices, workers and firms, the business world of New York and Pittsburgh, the cities which by 1929 Willa Cather had known well for over thirty years." In her introduction, Slote discusses their biographical elements, connections with earlier and later work, and the intricate patterns that lie below the lucid, shimmering surface of Willa Cather's prose.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Uncle Valentine and Other Stories is a treasure."
"Bernice Slote has introduced the collection with a remarkably lucid and illuminating essay."
"It is an extraordinary sensation to encounter the immense talent of Willa Cather again. . . . What a wonderful rediscovery [this] book affords!"-"Virginia Quarterly Review"
"The seven stories of the new collection hold their own artistically by giving us fresh explorations of the temper of the time. Their strength, moreover, tells us something important about Cather the fictionist, namely, that short narrative was not a lesser mode for her, not a five-finger exercise for a more capacious composition."-"Thought"
