An iconic collection that showcases Gardner as a master craftsman navigating an uncertain world In this exceptional book, author John Gardner explores the literary form as a vehicle of vision, and creates heroes that personify his tremendous artistic ideals: A Boston schoolmaster abandons his dreams of owning a farmhouse in rural Illinois only to be taken on a voyage across the seas and into self-discovery, faith, and love; an artist's rapturous enthusiasm inspires an aging university professor to approach life's chaotic moments as opportunities for creation. Each of these stories is wonderful in its own right, and provides valuable insight into the author's literary beliefs.      Written just prior to his critical masterwork, On Moral Fiction, The King's Indian is a must-read for those interested in learning more about Gardner's highly controversial artistic philosophies.   This ebook features a new illustrated biography of John Gardner, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Gardner family and the University of Rochester Archives.    … (más)

John Gardner, the American is a considerable stylist, and these stories are a very pleasant entertainment. The title story seems to be an homage to Edgar Allen Poe, and some of the others are redolent of Herman Melville. The illustrations are quite competent. ( )

A rather curious mix of tales by John Gardner, in three sections. The first section, "The Midnight Reader", is an odd grabbag of short stories set in Southern Illinois of different eras, with an occasional ghostly presence. Book Two, "Tales of Queen Louisa", is a semi-entertaining trio of linked stories set in medieval times, and is probably the class act of the book. The final book, "The King's Indian", is a strange novella centered around a young man conscripted to serve on a whaling ship that may or may not be a ghostly ship. Not Gardner at his best. ( )
