A vibrant journey through the annals of classic American short stories
21 Essential American Short Stories is a collection of beloved stories that have comprised an important part of the fabric of our culture, from the earliest days of our nation to the 20th century. Some of the stories, such as Washington Irving’s The Story of Rip Van Winkle,” O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi,” William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper,” and James Thurber’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” have been long regarded as literary classics, while others are lesser known but well-worth discovering. These carefully selected stories, each preceded by an illuminating headnote, illustrate the varied richness of our national literature and our history. This beautifully-packaged volume of America’s unforgettable classic short stories makes a perfect gift.
