Novelist and short-story writer Katherine Anne Porter (1890-1980) was born in Indian Creek, Texas, a great-great-granddaughter of Daniel Boone. She worked as a newspaperwoman in several major cities before moving to New York to write fiction.
 
“Maria Concepcion” was Porter’s first published story (1922). Her first book of stories was “Flowering Judas” (1930). Porter’s long short stories, written in flawless prose, have a texture and complexity usually found only in novels.
 
Porter received national acclaim for her collection, “Pale Horse, Pale Rider” (1939). It is a tale of youthful romance cut short by the young man’s death. Miranda, the heroine, is much like Porter herself, a spirited and independent woman.
 
“Ship of Fools” (1962) was Porter’s only novel. The best-seller tells of the lazy, foolish, and irresponsible people who made the rise of fascism possible. Her book, “Collected Short Stories” (1965), won Porter the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
 
Katherine Anne Porter’s most famous stories express political and social liberalism. Her last work, “The Never-Ending Wrong” (1977), deals with the Sacco-Vanzetti case of the 1920s.
