Review:

"I think the selections are terrific, and the ideas underlying the book are also terrific."

"The alphabetical arrangement of the course material seems democratic and not overly prescriptive, as organizing the material historically might be."

"3 X 33 may be unique in combining both breadth and depth in its selection of contemporary authors. For instructors looking for a short fiction anthology focused on mid-to-late Twentieth Century works with a good selection from each author, 3 X 33 may be ideal."

"The selections, for the most part, are great. I think Winegardner avoids the mistake of selecting stories just because they are easily 'teachable'. So many anthologies do this and you're left to wonder why the student is being asked to read the least ambitious of, say, Alice Munro's stories."
