In Collected Stories, prominent short-story writer Ruth Steiner takes on a new student, Lisa Morrison. The women are teacher and student, both in academia and in life, and they come from different social milieus. Ruth’s student eventually becomes her confidante and ultimately, her competitor. For her first novel, Lisa cannibalizes Ruth's experiences, including her youthful, shattering affair with a famous poet. Literate and intellectually stimulating, Collected Stories confronts the great age-old topic: the conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend—and finally threatening rival.
