   When Margery Latimer died in childbirth in 1932, she left behind a small body of published and unpublished fiction. Only 33, Latimer had not yet established a reputation and she is virtually unknown today. This book changes that. The stories reveal a writer working in a distinctly modern idiom. Latimer's style is ironic, distancing, and somewhat surreal as she explores sexuality and the unconscious in a recognizable midwestern setting. Because of her interest in women as artists and her attention to the details of repressed lives, Latimer has been called both a feminist Sherwood Anderson and a midwestern Nathalie Sarraute.
