Escapes: Stories by Joy Williams

Escapes: Stories by Joy Williams. 1990 Atlantic Monthly Press, first edition, 168 pages. Joy Williams is an essayist, novelist, and short-story writer, often writing about Florida and climate. In a profile in the New Yorker, Katy Waldman wrote: "Her tales offer a dark, provisional illumination, and they make the kind of sense that disperses upon waking. For years, Williams has worn sunglasses at all hours, as if to blacken her vision." Escapes is her second story collection.

Condition: Near fine.

"Written words were something between me and a place I could not go."
