Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These 20 stories were selected by series editor Ravenel from those printed in the previous ten editions of The Best American Short Stories. Among them is John Updike's "Deaths of Distant Friends," whose narrator discovers that losing those who knew him best is in some ways a blessing. In "The Way We Live Now," Susan Sontag offers a disturbing account of how AIDS ravages the basic fabric of human relationships. Paul Bowles writes with characteristic polish and masterful understatement in "In the Red Room," the story of an expatriate who takes his parents on an innocent sightseeing trip that brings them perilously close to discovering a terrible truth. In "The Management of Grief," Bharati Mukherjee explores the tunnels of pain navigated by a widow whose husband and sons are victims of an act of terrorism. The variety of styles and themes in this collection ably reflects the talents and versatility of the short story writers of our day. Highly recommended.
