Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This collection of short stories is based on the premise that there are different forms that short stories use as a way to tell a tale: the memoir, the fantasy, the commentary, the character study, letters, a report. Each of these modes is illustrated by an example from the recent past, and the authors include some well-known writers, such as Truman Capote and James Thurber, and some more current writers, such as Jhumpa Lahiri and Ann Beattie. The introduction by the editor is well done for those who wish to study the literary form. This collection would serve well as a textbook, but is also suitable for anyone who loves the genre of the short story. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Persea, dist. by Norton, 302p., Ages 15 to adult.
