Hemingway told Morley, "You have the stuff and will be a hell of a fine writer," and he even offered to put up his own money to get Morley’s stories published. "Big Time Stories" said Hemingway then, and Edmund Wilson, Anne Michaels, Alistair MacLeod, Margaret Atwood, in 2012 William Kennedy, since.

The complete short fiction of Morley Callaghan appears as he comes into full recognition as one of the singular storytellers of our time. In four volumes, several stories are collected for the first time, and two of the longer stories — "An Autumn Penitent" and "In His Own Country" — have been out of print for decades. Hemingway said his early stories were the equal of Joyce and Tolstoy; of his middle years, The New York Times said: "If there is a better storyteller in the world we don’t know where he is"; and Edmund Wilson compared his later work to Turgenev and Chekhov.

Introductions by Alistair Macleod, André Alexis, Anne Michaels and Margaret Atwood.

"The Complete Stories, attractively produced in four volumes, each introduced by a contemporary Canadian writer, and each containing 'Editor’s Endnotes.' The project is nothing if not ambitious... [and provides for] the definitive edition." —Books in Canada

So that the reader may appreciate this writer’s development and the shape of his career — and for those with a scholarly approach to the reading of these collections — each book contains an on-end section providing the year of publication for each story, a Q&A section related to each volume’s stories, and comprehensive editorial notes.
