Following the immense success of The Art of the Tale, Daniel Halpern has assembled the next generation of short-story writers—those born after 1937—to create a companion volume, The Art of the Story. Attesting to the depth, range, and continued popularity of short fiction, this collection includes seventy-eight contributors from thirty-five countries. The Art of the Story combines the best of the established masters as well as the fresh, new voices of writers whose work has seldom been translated into English.

Biographical Notes


"This is the anthology I've been looking for, for my Craft of Fiction class---the range and the types of stories included, the wide diversity of authors and traditions, the combination of experimentation and classics---this all makes for an exciting, useful, and enriching book for my students, and myself. Best of its type!" Don Skiles, Chabot College, CA
