Three luminous novels from a New York Times-bestselling author and National Book Award finalist whose "prose leaves compelling echoes in one's mind" (The New York Times Book Review).

Throughout her long and acclaimed career, May Sarton refused to be categorized. As a memoirist, poet, and novelist, she broke new ground by openly exploring homosexuality, gender inequality, and other once taboo social issues. Gathered here in one volume are three of her most memorable and moving works of fiction.

Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing: Widely regarded as her most important work, Sarton's 1965 semiautobiographical novel centers upon Hillary Stevens, an author now in her twilight years. As she prepares to publish anew, Stevens sits down to discuss her life, the arc of her creative journey, and her love affairswith both men and women. "The plot of this short novel is deceptively simple, the mood subtle, the feeling intense" (The New York Times Book Review).

A Shower of Summer Days: The Irish estate home Dene Court has been shuttered for yearsbut this summer Violet Dene Gordon and her husband Charles return from British Burma, electrifying life in the sleepy village that adjoins Violet's childhood home. As an added complication, Violet's American niece is being sent to Ireland to separate her from an unsuitable romantic attachment. A National Book Award finalist, "A Shower of Summer Days establishes once and for all [Sarton's] unmistakable authority" (The New York Times Book Review).

The Magnificent Spinster: This "absolutely compelling . . . monument to love . . . [and] friendship" is actually the story of two women: Cam, the novel's narrator, and the recently deceased Jane Reid. Unmarried and childless, Jane left no family to remember her, so Cam sets out to immortalize the life of her quietly remarkable friend and teacher in fiction (The Cleveland Plain Dealer).
