She eventually became a columnist and feature writer. Two of her short stories appeared in the December, 1944, issue of Preview. She published more than 100 stories in The New Yorker beginning in 1951. During her lifetime, she wrote two novels and several short story collections.

Gallant is an extraordinary writer. She is the kind of writer who, when you read one of her stories for the first time, makes you say "why haven't I been reading her all my life." If you have not done so already, do so now.

Not many writers could go deeper than this. Felt like Canada's Faulkner for a second, even with the difference in theme. I can't believe it. When the say writing is magic. I can believe it.
