About this course:

This exciting collection, edited by celebrated writer Joyce Carol Oates, begins with Washington Irving’s “Rip Van Winkle,” and other early masters like Henry James and Kate Chopin, continues with stories by John Updike, Annie Proulx, Tobias Wolff, Bernard Malamud and Stephen King, and culminates in contemporary delights from Amy Hempel, Ha Jin, Louise Erdrich, Lorrie Moore, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Junot Diaz. All new (no repeats), all short, all worthy of scrutiny, and all sources of delight.
