Jean Stafford. Generally speaking, it's one of those literary names that readers might find sort-of familiar, without quite knowing why.
That wouldn't have been the case in Stafford's heyday, during the 1940s and 50s. Back then, Stafford's short stories were published in prestigious venues like the Partisan Review and The New Yorker. A collected edition of those stories even won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1970.
