Description
This collection of 14 short stories won the American Book Award for fiction when it was published and confirmed the author's reputation as one of the preeminent literary talents of her generation. She enjoys both critical acclaim and great popularity with readers."The stories are wonderful to tell aloud...Gilchrist once again demonstrates not only her willingness to take risks, but her generosity as a writer as well." (The New York Times)"To say that Ellen Gilchrist can write is to say that Placido Domingo can sing. All you need to do is listen....No kidding! VICTORY OVER JAPAN is an absolute knockout!" (Washington Post)

display_description Originally published in 1984, this collection of 14 short stories set in Arkansas and Mississippi went on to win that year's National Book Award for fiction, confirming Ellen Gilchrist's place as one of the preeminent literary talents of her generation. Victory Over Japan takes us into the lives of an unforgettable group of Southern women - beautiful, complicated, enchanting, and sometimes dangerous - in and out of bars, marriages, divorces, lovers' arms, and even earthquakes, in an attempt to find happiness, or at least some satisfaction. Throughout these stories, one hears echoes of Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty, but Ms. Gilchrist has her own unique literary voice, and it is outrageously funny, moving, tragic, and always appealing.
