    One thought on “The Women on the Wall”

    1. Written during World War II and its aftermath, these short stories encompase women and who they really are in a spectacular way. I love reading short stories--especially when they're this good.

    2. If this was the only Stegner I ever read, I might rate it lower. As it is, you can clearly see the writer that he later would become, even if this one is more rough around the edges. It is writing from another time, his voice is very early 20th century. He is quite simply on the short list of the greats.

    3. This is the first Stegner I've actually read. I listed to Angle of Repose on cd and LOVED it. It was so difficult the first night after I'd finished to know I couldn't hear any more of what was happening with the characters. I like the way Stegner uses such description but its never to much and the words he uses seem to so accurately convey the characters and their stories with such acuity.

    4. I love Stegner and had I read this before reading so many of his other works, would have liked it better. Instead I felt like I was just reading exerts from other works that were quite similar and as a result was easily able to put it down and read a few other books before coming back to finish out of obligation. Colorful stories and well written just repetitious.

    5. Not a fan. I discovered that I really don't like reading short stories. As soon as you get to know the characters the story is over.
