Read full description of the books:



On the centennial of William Maxwell's birth, here is the second volume in a two-volume collected edition that reveals the full range of an extraordinary literary voice, a voice that John Updike has called one of the wisest in American fiction . . . as well as one of the kindest. In Later Novels and Stories, Maxwell deepens his connection to his signature subject matter even as he broadens his canvas. The Chateau (1961) describes the most subtle and bittersweet encounter of American naivete and Old World mystery since Henry James. So Long, See You Tomorrow, Billie Dyer (1992) and eleven other works of short fiction, some never before collected. The volume concludes with forty brief improvisations, fairy tales Maxwell wrote for his wife and the essay "Nearing Ninety" (1997), his moving valediction to a lifetime of reading and storytelling.

Read information about the author

Ebook William Maxwell: Later Novels and Stories read Online! William Keepers Maxwell Jr. was an American novelist, and fiction editor at the New Yorker. He studied at the University of Illinois and Harvard University. Maxwell wrote six highly acclaimed novels, a number of short stories and essays, children's stories, and a memoir, Ancestors (1972). His award-winning fiction, which is increasingly seen as some of the most important of the 20th Century, has recurring themes of childhood, family, loss and lives changed quietly and irreparably. Much of his work is autobiographical, particularly concerning the loss of his mother when he was 10 years old growing up in the rural Midwest of America and the house where he lived at the time, which he referred to as the "Wunderkammer" or "Chamber of Wonders". He wrote of his loss "It happened too suddenly, with no warning, and we none of us could believe it or bear it... the beautiful, imaginative, protected world of my childhood swept away." Since his death in 2000 several works of biography have appeared, including A William Maxwell Portrait: Memories and Appreciations (W. W. Norton & Co., 2004), My Mentor: A Young Man's Friendship with William Maxwell by Alec Wilkinson (Houghton-Mifflin, 2002), and William Maxwell: A Literary Life by Barbara Burkhardt (University of Illinois Press, 2005). In 2008 the Library of America published the first of two collections of William Maxwell, Early Novels and Stories, Christopher Carduff editor. His collected edition of William Maxwell's fiction, published to mark the writer's centenary, was completed by a second volume, Later Novels and Stories in the fall of 2008.'
