A pocket book of modern American short stories Collectif d'auteurs


Since its first publication, in 1943, this anthology of the finest American writing of the twenties and thirties has sold over one and one-half million copies. Now, two and one-half decades later, the distinguished authors represented here remain the most prominent figures in what is recognized as the high point of modern American fiction. These writers, all superb craftsmen, set a new standard of writing for our national literature. Their stories, documents of their time, are a record of our yesterdays-experiences transmitted by the fire of their imagination.
