These stories were written as individual pieces, each self-contained. But they are arranged according to Morgan’s chronology—not the chronology of their composition—and taken together they trace his growing up in the town of Morgan. Though they were not conceived as a novel, if read in the order in which they are arranged, they will have something of the effect of a novel: less than a novel but more than a collection of short stories.
