Description
Two classics of American literature from one of the twentieth century's most gift writers.

Tillie Olsen earned a permanent place in American literature on the strength of a single book, Tell me a Riddle, published in 1962. This collection of four stories was widely hailed as a work of genius, in which the voices of ordinary Americans, black and white, male and female, were given their own rhythms and forms of expression.

Yonnondio, Olsen's only novel, tells the story of the Holbrooks, an itinerant working-class family in middle-America during the thirties. Brutalized by poverty, they struggle to find a space to breathe, to dream and to create a better life for their children. Told in compelling, haunting prose, it is a profound and timeless story of the human will to survive.
