"This accessible and attractive volume is split into four sections offering a history of the American short story. The first three are presented chronologically, with chapters on stories from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and a transitional period in between . . . For all readers, it is what such a Companion should be-a ladder that the newly enthused short-story reader will climb, only to move onto higher ground." (Routledge ABES, 2011)
