THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 1956

This hardy perennial keeps up the same sort of selection in these twenty-one pieces drawn from such magazines as The New Yorker. The Virginia Quarterly, The Kenyon Review, Epoch, Quixote, The Paris Review etc. Known names such as Shirley Jackson, Robert Coates, Christine Weston, Flannery O'Connor consort with new ones and while some are stimulating, all are sturdy.
