The American Short Story since 1950 offers a reappraisal and contextualisation of a critically underrated genre during a particularly rich period in its history.
It offers new readings of important stories by key writers including Flannery O’Connor, John Cheever, Donald Barthelme, Raymond Carver, Lorrie Moore and Grace Paley.
These readings are related throughout to the various contexts in which stories are written and published, including creative writing schools, story-writing handbooks, mass market and ‘little’ magazines.
