Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This highly Acclaimed collection of short stories by American writers contains only the best literary art of the past four decades. With a bias toward realism editors Raymond Carver and Tom Jenks have selected fiction that “tells a story”–and tells it with a masterful handling of language, situation, and insight.

But what is so special about this volume is that it mirrors our age, our concerns, and our lives. Whether it’s the end of a marriage, as in Bobbie Ann Manson’s “Shiloh,” or the struggle with self-esteem and weight in Andre Dubus’s “The Fat Girl,” the 36 works included her probe issues that give us that “shock of recognition” that is the hallmark of great art—wonderful, absorbing fiction that will be read and reread for decades to come.

Biographie de l'auteur

Raymond Carver was born in Clatskanie, Oregon, in 1938. His first collection of stories, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please (a National Book Award nominee in 1977), was followed by What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, Cathedral (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1984), and Where I'm Calling From in 1988, when he was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He died in August of that year, shortly after completing the poems of A New Path to the Waterfall.

Il fut déjà un miracle que je trouve ce livre, tant cherché! Mais je ne me faisait aucune illusion que ça tiendrait du miracle s'il n'étais pas gribouillé, maché, ou déchiré... mais un fois mon colis dans ma boite aux lettres arrivé, le miracle fut! Bon, il pue un peu la vieille mais sinon il est parfait! Cependant je dois avouer que je l'ai attendu longtemps méme si ça respectait la fourchette de temps évalué par Amazon.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 “American Short Story Masterpieces” ed. R. Carver & T. Jenks 13 mars 2016
Par weston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This may be the last anthology of stories, from the 1950-90s, with a narrative and a punch, as distinct from the self-reflective genre that has followed. Particularly memorable were: Carol Bly’s Talk of Heros about Willi, the Norwegian war hero who held up under the tender mercies of two Gestapo torturers with knee drills long enough for his colleagues in the destruction of a munitions factory to escape in a small boat to a waiting British submarine, an experience that left him a permanent drunk, shortly after the war being sent to address a Norwegian immigrants society in St. Paul; Richard Ford’s Rock Springs which chronicles the aimlessness and casual criminality of the lower class in the West; Arthur Miller’s The Misfits about men without a future chasing runty inbred wild horses out of the mountains to sell to a catfood plant for just enough to pay for a night’s drinking in Bowie; Flannery O’Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find about murderous backwoods weirdos in North Georgia presages James Dickey’s later Deliverance; David Quammen’s Walking Out is a rousing adventure story of a divorced mountain man taking his Chicago teenage son on a hunting trip in the Montana mountains that quickly turns into a disaster involving grizzly bears, snow and the accidental shooting of the father who is carried for 2 days the 8 staggering miles downhill (dead) by his son in blinding snow; and John Updike’s The Christian Roommates about oddly paired freshmen roommates at Harvard, one of whom an A-student that growing up on a plan to secede his father as the doctor in a small town in South Dakota and the other a D-student resisting the draft who ended up a professional agitator and opponent to authority in its various forms.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Literature In Your Pocket 25 janvier 2010
Par R. J. Marsella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
There are so many short story collections, many of which contain some of the same selections represented here. What sets this small paperback volume apart is that it is truly portable and can be carried in a jacket pocket when traveling or commuting. It has remarkable stories by a wide selection of American writers. My favorite is Flannery O'Conner's A Good Man Is Hard To FInd but there are many more. This is a risk free purchase if ever there was one. Eight bucks for some of the best samples of short fiction ever written.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Collection 7 janvier 2014
Par Mark Nassutti - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I'm 2/3 through this collection and often find myself riveted. Sometimes I'm forced to hold my breath in near shock as tension explodes through the words on the page. Other times I find myself marveling at a turn of phrase, a lyrical construction or a connection back to a bit of foreshadowing. I've found myself laughing out loud. Out of curiosity, I've researched each author after reading their story. Gaining a better understanding of their backgrounds and careers has enriched the experience tremendously. Getting a feeling for where the story came from makes their stories that much more powerful. I'm studying these works in order to improve my own writing skills, and I'm inspired.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Print too small 11 mars 2016
Par Marie Gerber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
My only real problem was that the print is very small. I also feel that some of the stories are not paragraphed sufficiently so that along with the small print, the story(ies goes on and on and do not hold my attention.
