SHORT STORY I

A logical outgrowth of Scribner's poetry annual of Today, this short story collection, the first in a series, presents twenty one stories by four young writers all of whom have been published and two of them have won prizes for their efforts. Whether by accident or design, these stories deal with the alienation of modern man in his personal relationships as parent, child, husband, wife, lover and friend. They differ in style from a Paddy Chayefaky sort of realism to the amorphous approach bordering on the obscurantist and provide an interesting if not particularly exciting experience for the reader concerned with serious contemporary American fiction.
