Some of the greatest short stories of the twentieth century have been written by women, yet they are consistently under-represented in fiction anthologies. The Oxford Book of Women's Short Stories aims to redress the balance by bringing together some of the best of women's writing from such acknowledged practitioners as Katherine Mansfield and Edith Wharton and more recent work from exciting and innovative authors such as Bharati Mukherjee, Alice Munro and Anjama Appachana. Along the way you will find humour, passion, eccentricity, forcefulness, elan, intellectual vigour, subversion - indeed every kind of literary expertise from ironic detachment to full-blooded engagement with the issues raised. every one of the authors represented here has her own, perfectly realized, individual angle of vision, whether it's the zestfulness of Angela Carter, the breathtaking evocations of Eudora Welty, the quirkiness of Paley, or the pungency of Flannery O'Connor. This book is intended for readers of modern fiction, women writers, students and teachers on women's studies courses.
