This volume provides an introduction to literature; it contains a broad selection of literature - from the contemporary to the canonical, the serious to the humorous, and the poignant to the whimsical. It now includes a contemporary selection of stories, works by Gish Jen, Andrea Barret and Rick Bass as well as old favorites by Joyce, Hemingway, and O'Connor. It also contains poetry and plays by a number of contemporary and classical authors.

"I prefer the selections in Kirszner and Mandell's Literature: Reading, Reacting, Writing. The selections will provide endless opportunities and inspirations for students to find their own voices within larger critical, global, and literary contexts."
