From one of America's most acclaimed authors comes a masterful collection of bittersweet tales about the autumn of life In the exquisite title story, seventy-six-year-old Virginia Tyler will finally marry the love of her life-as soon as she finds the courage to leave her husband of almost fifty years. In "The Apple of Discord," a Hudson Valley farmer, heartsick that none of his three daughters or their husbands wants to keep the family orchard, commits an act of desperation."Vissi d'Arte" is the poignant story of a husband whose belief that his wife is destined to become a world-famous painter borders on the delirious. In "A Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man," an aging writer realizes that the young reporter sent from the big-city newspaper to interview him is gathering material for his obituary. The lies he tells her are a delicious act of defiance. By turns tender, funny, and sad, September Song is William Humphrey at his most eloquent and empathetic. This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Humphrey including rare photos form the author's estate.
