Here are 36 of the finest American short stories the 20th century has yet seen by a writer whose mastery of the genre has influenced an entire generation. John O'Hara created whole, complex worlds in as few as a thousand words. Wonderfully compelling and dazzlingly detailed, his stories are rich with plot alone. But people are the heart of such diverse tales as "The Doctor's Son," "Over the River and Through the Wood," and "Imagine Kissing Pete." With an unerring ear for dialogue and a keen eye for the nuances of class, character and manners, O'Hara presents an idiosyncratic vision of basic human drives. His astonish range encompasses the cafe society of New York, Hollywood's star makers, and the simpler folk of Pennsylvania country. Spanning the work of three decades, this volume offers the best of a long, prolific and distinguished career. --Book jacket

Waiting for winter : [stories] by John O'Hara( Book )

Helicopter parents have become a recent phenomenon in higher education. Who are these parents and why have they landed on our college campuses? This monograph examines parental involvement in higher education by looking at the history of the relationship between students and institutions and institutional responses to this phenomenon. It explores alternative theoretical frameworks that highlight the benefits of strong parental relationships for today's college students, paying particular attention to the variables of gender, race, and socioeconomic class and how they inform the student-parent relationship. This text concludes with implications for practice and suggestions for policy so that all parents are included in our institutional efforts, not just the ones making all the noise. -- Back cover
