Overview

J. D. Salinger's "A Perfect Day for Bananafish," John Cheever's "Goodbye, My Brother," Doris Lessing's "Through the Tunnel": These and dozens of other beloved stories share the beach as their setting.

Beach brings together, for the first time, the very best of this literary tradition, including stories, novel excerpts, and narrative nonfiction.
