Excerpt from The College Short Story Reader
The stories in this collection are intended for college stu dents either in general courses or in special courses in the writing of fiction. Most of them were published during the last thirty years, about the span of one generation. Some of them, particularly the earlier ones, have been reprinted Often and are among the classics of the period, stories that, as the saying is, everyone ought to know; some have not appeared before in an anthology of this kind. I have tried to gather together stories that are good reading and that are character istic of the period, stories that are varied in subject and in the way they are told. Believing that too much history, too.
