Biography

Tennessee-born novelist best remembered for his single mystery, The Clues of the Carribees, and for his trilogy of novels about a country town, the middle volume of which won the Pulitzer Prize.more

Collecting tips:

Thomas Sigismund Stribling is kind of an interesting partially-forgotten author. He won the Pulitzer Prize for The Store (1932), the second part of a trilogy that included The Forge and Unfinished Cathedral (1934), and which was apparently based on the doings in his hometown of Clifton, Tennessee. He also wrote a collection of well-regarded detective stories Clues of the Carribees (1929), which appears as both a Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone, and a Queen's Quorum title, both seminal lists of collectible detective fiction. Although his other early books are less well-known, it seems that even these command a premium when found in nice jackets.more
