Great Short Stories of the Masters by Charles Neider

Forty-nine short stories, selected for their richness of detail, accurate depictions of human passion, and international scope, fill this collection. The authors include Americans such as Hemingway, Faulkner, Saul Bellow, and Flannery O'Connor, 19th and 20th century Western European giants such as Proust, Sartre, Flaubert, Kafka, Mann, Pirandello, Rilke, and Balzac, Russian icons Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Pushkin, Turgenev, and Chekhov, and Asian writers Rabindranath Tagore and Lu Hsun. While many of the names are recognizable (though some, such as Bunin, Lagerlof, Nexo, and Svevo rank among the lesser-known), Neider has favored gems less familiar to the average reader.
