9780241239674: The Penguin Book of the British Short Story: Volumes I & II
Vedi tutte le copie di questo ISBN:

There have been many anthologies of English-language short stories - but until now, no major, sweeping overview of short stories from writers throughout Great Britain, across multiple genres, of vastly varying lengths and styles and for all readers. Included are not only the most famous creators of short stories, but also many very extraordinary but now unknown writers.

This is the ultimate collection, in two beautiful hardback volumes, for different readers of different tastes and at different points in their reading career.

Edited and with an introduction by Philip Hensher, the award-winning novelist, critic and journalist.

Philip Hensher's most recent novel is The Emperor Waltz. He estimates that to create this anthology he had to read perhaps 6,000 short stories and thinks it was probably the most enjoyable literary experience of his life to date.
