American Short Stories offers a discriminating collection of both canonical and recent stories in a brief anthology made all the more flexible by its streamlined apparatus. While retaining its historical thrust, chronological organization, and attention to classic works, the new seventh edition of American Short Stories features more contemporary stories, a greater representation of writers from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and more contextual information.
