The Penguin Book of American Short Stories Paperback

Edited by James Cochrane


'American literature and the short story might be said to have come of age at about the same time, and this, along with something in the bustling and energetic American temperament, might go some way towards explaining why the two go together as well as they do'.

This title includes twenty-one short stories from some of the best American writers over the last two hundred years that provide a mesmerizing, multi-faceted portrait of a country, a people and the unique literature produced by this most exuberant of nations.
