Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are some amazing stories in this anthology, and not just from the usual suspects. Sherman Alexie, Mary Gaitskill, Robert Stone, Julie Orringer, Matthew Klam, George Saunders, Denis Johnson, Lorrie Moore -- each story is good, each is completely different, and there has got to be something for everyone.

Highly recommended - would make a great gift as well. I'm ordering the first collection as soon as I finish this review. The introduction, though well written, is probably only for story writers. Everyone else, dive right in.

I am a literate shut in. I read short stories almost every day for entertainment and to sharpen my mind. This is a great collection of short stories. And by using Amazon Prime I had it on my door step in a couple of days. I love it. Thank you Amazon.

This is a stunning collection of American short stories, with an introduction to the genre by Richard Ford. His insightful comments make the reading of the stories more meaningful. I purchased this book for a short story discussion group and am enjoying savoring the stories that we choose each month.
