Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0684188228, Paperback)

McPherson's second collection of short stories won the Pulitzer Prize, an honor it richly deserved for his fine writing and unique perspective. The range here is astounding: "The Story of a Dead Man," is reminiscent of "bad-man" folk songs like "Railroad Bill" or "Stagolee"; "The Faithful" shows the clash of generations in the story of a stubborn barber; while the title story depicts McPherson's uncompromising, yet optimistic, vision for an integrated America.
