Synopsis:
New York Magazine Best Book of the Year
A Huffington Post Best Book of the Year 
Twenty contemporary authors introduce twenty sterling examples of the short story from the pages of The Paris Review.   What does it take to write a great short story? In Object Lessons, twenty contemporary masters of the genre answer that question, sharing favorite stories from the pages of The Paris Review. Over the course of the last half century, the Review has launched hundreds of careers while publishing some of the most inventive and best-loved stories of our time. This anthology---the first of its kind---is more than a treasury: it is an indispensable resource for writers, students, and anyone else who wants to understand fiction from a writer’s point of view.   "Some chose classics. Some chose stories that were new even to us. Our hope is that this collection will be useful to young writers, and to others interested in literary technique. Most of all, it is intended for readers who are not (or are no longer) in the habit of reading short stories. We hope these object lessons will remind them how varied the form can be, how vital it remains, and how much pleasure it can give."—from the Editors’ Note   WITH SELECTIONS BY Daniel Alarcón · Donald Barthelme · Ann Beattie · David Bezmozgis · Jorge Luis Borges · Jane Bowles · Ethan Canin · Raymond Carver · Evan S.

Summary: " The Paris Review is one of the few truly essential literary magazines of the twentieth century-and now of the twenty-first."-Margaret Atwood Praise for The Paris Review Interviews "The interviews are literary landmarks, and the gossip, humor, ideas, and practical advice dispensed are bracing."- San Francisco Chronicle "The most remarkable and extensive interviewing project we possess. A series of excursions, alternately purposeful and capricious, with side trips, stops for tea, and mystifications."- The New York Times "Utterly absorbing. fascinating and often quite funny."- The Boston Globe Praise for The Paris Review Book for Planes, Trains, Elevators, and Waiting Rooms "The contents are an embarrassment of A-level literary riches."-Robert Knox, The Boston Globe.
