Reading short stories is not something we do a lot of and thats a shame. They are so gratifying. This book from mid-20th century is full of stories from the best authors of the late 19th- and first half of the 20th century.Edited and with commentary and criticism by Sean OFaolain which is also some of the best reading in the book, this is a selection of short stories that appealed to him and which fit his agenda for this book. Sometimes I found his helps for readers a bit too much but I had to keep reminding myself that this was a text for college students, perhaps for people who dont read as much as many of us do.

It was also interesting to me to discover where OFaolain went with these stories, what he thought was important. That in itself was interesting reading and sometimes I found myself puzzled why he would harp on some of his points to strenuously. Thats just me. I found other things in these readings that spoke to me, and there is the rub. As with poetry, short stories can bring so many different things to different people.

It is interesting to read OFaolains ruminations. I suspect that I may sound less than impressed and that is not the case. I only mean that these stories have so very much to offer. Its is most important you find your own way through them.
