This third edition of a highly successful anthology traces the development of the American short story from such early practitioners as Washington Irving (Rip Van Winkle ), Edgar Allan Poe (The Fall of the House of Usher ), and Melville (Bartleby the Scrivener) up to the present day, and has a better representation of women writers and writers of colour than the previous editions. Among the strands of development which the editor identifies are `Regionalism and Realism' (Mark Twain: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calveras County), and the establishment of the short story as `A National Art Form' (Edith Wharton: Roman Fever, Scott Fitzgerald Babylon Revisted, Hemingway Big Two-Hearted River, William Faulkner That Evening Sun). Among the contemporary writers represented are: Philip Roth, John Updike, Robert Coover, Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Walker and Raymond Carver.

In one volume, the complete short fiction of the author of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, including her two most renowned novellas. Carson McCullers—novelist, dramatist, poet—was at the peak of her powers as a writer of short fiction. Here are nineteen stories that explore her signature themes including loneliness in marriage and the tragicomedy of life in the South. Included in this volume are “The Member of the Wedding” and “The Ballad of the Sad Café,” novellas that Tennessee Williams judged to be “assuredly among the masterpieces of our language.” “McCullers patented the Southern gothic genre that embraces grotesque, morbid characters with such pervading themes as unrequited love and wounded adolescence. Largely set in the South and richly autobiographical, her writings have endured because of their great power and originality.” —Library Journal
