By Hwang on June 7, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of the texts used at SUNY, Binghamton in its course on Modern British and American Short Stories during the winter of 1986, this anthology features some of the finest short stories ever published.

However, be careful in choosing the edition because the one I purchased was an older edition that did not feature innumerable short stories that was covered during the course at SUNY, and particularly absent was my favorite short story in the anthology "You Touched Me" by D.H. Lawrence. I've been searching for an anthology featuring this short story for a very long time. If anyone can point me to an anthology that incorporates this short story, I'd be very grateful. I can be contacted at cheong_hwang@yahoo.com.

This is still one of the very best anthologies out there for twentieth century short stories. Fitzgerald's "Babylon Revisited," O'Connor's "My Oedipus Complex," Wharton's delicious "Roman Fever," Faulkner's "The Fire and the Hearth" -- these alone make the book worth the price, but there are many more!
