Ann Charters' The Story and Its Writer: An Introduction to Short Fiction, ISBN 9780312596231 serves as a best-selling, comprehensive collection of classic and contemporary written works by some of the greatest fictional writers. This introduction to fiction is organized and written in a manner that appeals to students and provides them with easy flow and readability of the text. Charters has carefully chosen and compiled 124 fiction stories within this anthology and coupled those with biographical notes, commentaries from several of the authors, as well as casebooks from some of the modern writers. Students will gain a strong grasp of the realm of fictional writing thanks to the all-inclusive nature of this resource. Charters, an English professor at the University of Connecticut, has a passion for written work, particularly that of fiction. This passion is clearly evident within the pages of The Story and Its Writer: An Introduction to Short Fiction. She has skillfully organized the plethora of fictional reading selections as well as other amazing resources into four sections. Part 1, simply entitled 'Stories' is just that…a collection of fictional stories from the world's greatest classical and modern writers. English adaptations of several foreign works are even included. These stories are organized in alphabetical order by the author's last name for quick reference. Featured selections from writers include the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ernest Hemingway, Washington Irving, Flannery O'Connor, Edgar Allan Poe, and Virginia Wolfe. Part 2 of this text provides wonderful conversation-like presentations of 'Commentaries' from some of the great featured authors including Mark Twain, Henry James, and Jack London. Part 3 provides students an opportunity to look at eight differing casebooks while the text concludes with a wonderfully practical appendix filled with resources on the elements of fiction, a history of the short story, as well as a glossary of literary terms.
