The Granta Book of the American Short Story - Volume 2

by Edited and introduced by Richard Ford
£12.99   paperback  Granta Books (2008)

The Granta Book of the American Short Story - Volume 2 by Edited and introduced by Richard Ford In 1992 Richard Ford edited and introduced the first Granta Book of the American Short Story. It became the definitive anthology of American short fiction written in the last half of the twentieth century.
 
In the fifteen years since, Ford has been reading new stories and re-reading old ones. The result is this completely new collection of stories that he regretted overlooking the first time round as well as many by a new generation of writers, among them Sherman Alexie, Juno Diaz, Deborah Eisenberg, Nell Freudenberger, Matthew Klam, Jhumpa Lahiri and ZZ Packer.

"A lively collection full of its editor's good taste... 44 vibrant, shocking, fresh and classic stories...thrilling."
