Synopses & Reviews
"[This book's] arrival is a cause for celebration, since it demonstrates, among other things, that the short story flourishes outside of America... This selection from English-speaking writers (excluding only the U.S.) displays a far greater diversity of styles and subjects than the average American story annual... An essential collection for short-story readers." -
This fourth annual collection of short stories in English by writers not American contains, for the first time, more than twenty stories.
An anthology of English short fiction includes the works of such well-known writers as Ruth Rendell, William Trevor, Peter Carey and Edna O'Brien.
