Overview

In this collection of nearly three dozen essays about the short story, contributors reveal the diversity of their attitudes, backgrounds and approaches. Their general topics include their definition of the short story, the relationship of the writer to the story and vice versa, storytelling and pedagogy, culture, politics, gender, the process of discovery, the reasons for writing, form, and art. Along the way they cover such issues as publishing problems, stereotyping and categorizing, disputes with critics and critical theories, and issues of honesty and dishonesty. Contributors are leading practitioners and critics, and editor Lee (English, U. of Central Arkansas) provides a lively introduction. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
