    Om Three Short Novels

    Gina Berriaults work as a storywriter of great psychological empathy and extraordinary elegance and subtlety was celebrated widely at the end of her life. Her collection Women in Their Beds, won the PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction, the National Books Critics Prize in fiction and the Rea Prize for lifetime achievement. She has few equals in the history of the American short story. Over the course of her career she also wrote several novels and novellas, and we have here a collection of the three finest, which have each been published before as separate volumes but which have been out of print and unavailable for many years. They each can be counted among her finest work.The Son was first published in 1962, The Conference of Victims in 1966. And The Lights of Earth, first published in 1984, stands easily alongside her greatest achievements. All three are stories about women. In The Son, Vivian believes men run the world and finds meaning only in erotic love. As she envies her sons future, and wishing to share it, she seduces him. Naomi, in Conference of Victims, is thrown nearly out of her mind by her brothers suicide. Only her need to love keeps her alive. When it was first published, Andre Dubus said of The Lights of Earth, Like her stories, its masterly. Its central character is a woman, Ilona Lewis, who confronts loss of earthly love. But Ilonas experience is far more complex than losing a man because he has become a celebrity. It involves the hearts of all of us seeking the lights of earth, the souls blessing in its long, dark night.
