Designed for the English-speaking student, this reader brings together the Arabic texts of eleven of the best modern Arabic short stories. Each is preceded by an introduction in English, containing biographical information about the author and a critical analysis designed to encourage the student to make a literary response to the story, rather than regarding it as an anthropological curiosity or a linguistic conundrum. Notes explain colloquial and idiomatic words and phrases, which may cause difficulty.

This anthology -- the fruit of several years' teaching experience -- will help to satisfy a growing interest in modern Arabic literature in many parts of the world.
