Katherine Anne Porter
Pale Horse, Pale Rider
1939

This slender volume contains three perfectly crafted short novels from the 1930s: Old Mortality is a tale of memory and deception in a glamorous Southern family. Noon Wine is a slow, unnerving story about a taciturn harmonica player who brings trouble to a South Texas farm. Pale Horse, Pale Rider is a love story and a profound meditation on life, death, loss, and the will to live. All three are imbued with wisdom and compassion that are truly timeless.
