What goes without saying : collected stories of Josephine Jacobsen by Josephine Jacobsen( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recipient of nearly every major literary award in the United States, Josephine Jacobsen has enjoyed a career that spans more than six decades, from the publication of her first poem at age eleven to her 1995 nomination as a National Book Award finalist. What Goes without Saying brings together thirty of her previously published stories. In "Sound of Shadows," she takes readers through the double-bolted front door of a row house, into the narrow quarters of Mrs. Bart, an elderly widow who has folded her life into her dark living room, where the sole light in her "one room wide" world comes from the magenta-and-green-tinged colors flashing on her television screen. We follow the muezzin's melancholy call in "A Walk with Raschid," an O. Henry Prize story about an intriguing ten-year-old Arab boy who guides a honeymoon couple through the Moroccan Fez. And the tautly written "Protection" begins with an exacting poetic image that is typical of Jacobsen's insightful prose: "Mica sparkles. The banshee ambulance is beating its mad bell. Like a reaped grassblade on a meadow of macadam, its object lies."
