The art of the story: an international anthology of contemporary short stories
Following the immense success of The Art of the Tale, Daniel Halpern has assembled the next generation of short-story writers -- those born after 1937 -- to create a companion volume, The Art of the Story. Attesting to the depth, range, and continued popularity of short fiction, this collection includes seventy-eight contributors from thirty-five countries. The Art of the Story combines the best of the established masters as well as the fresh, new voices of writers whose work has seldom been translated into English.
