Format: Mass Market Paperback
Why revise and update a collection of short stories that included some of the best examples of craft from the last 150 years? To be inclusive, to be fair, to be PC.... What is the ultimate effect of that intent? An ardent wish that the first edition be put back into print alongside this second edition, so that the PC crowd could have their book, while the rest of us, who aren't scared of good reading, could have the other. But even if this egalitarian scenario were to be enacted, this current edition would be worth a look-see for the new gems that the editors managed to include, especially "Doby's Gone" by Ann Petry. Yes, it's true that stories have been neglected in the past due to stifling notions about race and gender. But what this collection demonstrates is that stories are still neglected due to stifling notions about race and gender. What has suffered this time around is craft & quality (not to mention representation from more qualified authors). Most of the excellent selections are holdovers from the first edition. Many of the rest (but certainly not all) are politically correct and not much else

My issue is not with the anthology so much as the copy I received. It began on page 33... so obviously a defective copy. Unfortunately I waited until after the return window to open the book.

So CHECK YOUR COPY ON ARRIVAL. Given that this anthology compiles not only stories but some editorial notes, I feel like I missed out on crucial opening notes.

This book was given to us by a Canadian exhange teacher and it has opened up so many avenues of reading. From Shirley Jackson's horror masterpiece The Lottery through to Truman Capote's My Side of the Matter, it is a brilliant, brillant anthology. A lifetime's reading awaits anyone who picks up this book as each story makes you seek out the author.

This book uses a wonderfully varied selection of stories to teach the reader about different Point of View's (pov) and how they effect the tone and content of a story. As a wanna-be writer I have found this one of my most effective books I make frequent reference to.
