His best-known works are the novel The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day, The Lay of the Land and Let Me Be Frank With You, and the short story collection Rock Springs, which contains several widely anthologized stories. His novel Wildlife was adapted into a 2018 film of the same name.

Ford glancingly acknowledges the luxury of going back to re-collect stories, 15 years on but he seems largely to agree with the choices he made then: 14 of the original authors appear again, with different stories. After a somewhat complicated attempt to define what makes a good short story (defining the essence of good literature is, after all, so much more difficult than identifying what is bad), he concedes that "My tastes, of course, have been at work.

  • The title of this one could be a bit misleading and confusing. More accurately described as 11 shorter books or novellas, this one is a treasure trove of fine writing by wonderful writers (William Styron, Eudora Welty, Philip Roth, Ernest J. Gaines, Stanley Elkin, Jane Smiley and more). Arranged so that there is at least one story from each decade since the 40's, this book offers a look at some of the finest writing out there - not only from today but from years past.

With the price of books being so high these days, if you tried to buy these 11 books separately, you'd be hard-pressed to find them all for a price anywhere near the cost of this volume. Lots of wonderful reading and a great price to boot make this one an easy pick.

  • far from flash fiction, but — in just under 700 pages — eleven tales well-told and well-selected, from 1947 to 1995. the pages can take the

  • This is a wonderful collection of novellas.
