Lone Pilgrim by Laurie Colwin

Lone Pilgrim: Stories by Laurie Colwin. 1981 Knopf, first edition, 211 pages. In a retrospective on Laurie Colwin in the New York Times: "Colwin suggests that our lives are never definitively settled, but evolve as a series of glittering, memorable shards. Her fiction reflects her sense of the shadow around the edges that haunts even our moments of most buoyant, intense delight." This is a collection of thirteen stories, some of which was published in the New Yorker, where she regularly published.
