Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
American Short Stories, 8/e is a streamlined anthology that includes "classic" works and contemporary stories that are organized chronologically.  Of the sixty selected stories making up this anthology, sixteen are new to the eighth edition and nine of the authors are new.  Increased attention is given to the social and cultural contexts in which the short fiction of the United States unfolded.  The stories represent a wide range of themes and techniques, forms and types, motifs, tones, and issues.     

Review:

American short stories capture America’s past and present in a unique way.  Now you have an opportunity to immerse yourself in the more than two hundred year history of the American short story by taking this course and reading the new eighth edition of American Short Stories.  While retaining its historical thrust and chronological organization, the new eighth edition features more contemporary stories and gives increased attention to the social and cultural contexts in which the short fiction of the United States has unfolded.
