The 80th anniversary edition of "the nation's most prestigious awards for the short story."--The Atlantic Monthly

Established early in the last century as a memorial to O. Henry, throughout its history this annual collection has consistently offered a remarkable sampling of contemporary short stories. Each year stories are chosen from large and small literary magazines and a panel of distinguished writers is enlisted to award the top prizes. The result is a superb collection of twenty inventive, full-bodied stories representing the very best in American and Canadian fiction.

Synopsis:

Presenting a superb collection of 20 inventive, full-bodied works of fiction, this is the 80th anniversary edition of "the nation's most prestigious awards for the short story" ("The Atlantic Monthly").
