description -

Foggy Mountain Breakdown, the first-ever collection of Sharyn McCrumb's short fiction, is a literary quilting of old and new, humorous and heartfelt, offering award-winning works - and two stories never before published - contrasting mountain childhoods past and present. Chilling tales of suspense alternate with evocative character portraits and compelling narratives that embrace the southern Appalachian locales and themes of McCrumb's acclaimed Ballad Novels. Within this cornucopia of two dozen stories, Old Rattler, a mountain healer, skirmishes with a serial killer...Princess Di investigates long-kept secrets within the House of Windsor...a reincarnated murder victim seeks delicious revenge...and while honeymooning in the bridegroom's ancestral hilltop homeplace, two newlyweds harbor second thoughts.
