Going Through the Change
StoriesBook - 1994
A brilliant first collection of short stories, Going Through the Change deals with the often turbulent lives of the people who inhabit rural South Georgia. Among them are The Count, who torches the local schoolhouse after his daughters are expelled for being "racially impure"; Lyneice, a recently widowed woman who gets into a fight at the local singles bar; and Kurl, a desperate war veteran who kidnaps a mildly retarded young hitchhiker. Characterized by a fresh and vivid use of language, unfailing humor, and boundless empathy, these stories will help establish Janice Daugharty as one of our outstanding writers of short fiction.
