The Moslem Wife and Other Stories

The Moslem Wife and Other Stories is a collection of eleven of Mavis Gallant’s stories, selected and with an afterword by Mordecai Richler. There is the precise portrait of a minor Canadian diplomat in The Ice Wagon Going Down the Street, a young German soldier’s return to his ravaged home in The Latehomecomer, and two English hotel-keepers on the Riviera in The Moslem Wife. This collection showcases Gallant’s incisive observations of human nature.
