This anthology of short stories has been designed specifically as an instructional text for first-year university students. To explore the many dimensions of short narrative fiction, the collection includes traditional classics from European culture, from Chaucer to Gogol and Chekhov, and extends to popular and celebrated stories from contemporary writers. There is a decided emphasis on new stories from the Plains region of Canada and the United States. Guy Vanderhaeghe, Richard Ford, Margaret Laurence, Thomas King, Bonnie Burnard, Louise Erdrich--all of them present masterly tales with specific appeal to students at post-secondary institutions.
