Richard Ford, who is among the finest of American novelists and short story writers, edits and introduces this volume. First published by Granta in 1992, it became the definitive anthology of American short fiction written in the last half of the twentieth century - an 'exemplary choice' in the words of the "Washington Post" - with stories by writers such as Eudora Welty, John Cheever, and Raymond Carver (and forty others) demonstrating how much memorable power can lie in the briefest narration. Along with "The Granta Book of the American Short Story: Volume 2", this book constitutes an important reflection and judgment of recent American writing - as well as the superb pleasure yielded by the stories themselves.
