THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 1992 by Robert Stone
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Nov. 12, 1992

"A better-than-usual collection."
Stone, in an agreeably short, scholarly, assured preface, makes note that nine of the twenty choices here come from The New Yorker because "while The New Yorker is still able to attract first-rate submissions, the days are past when there was such a thing as a 'New Yorker story.'" He also notes that his choices "reflect what is probably the most significant development in late-twentieth-century American fiction, the renewal and revitalization of the realist mode....As of 1992, American writers seem ready to accept traditional forms without self-consciousness in dealing with the complexity of the world around them."
