Editorial Reviews

"The diversity of themes and cultural perspectives is excellent. . . . The selection of stories is engaging and will stimulate discussions that will further critical thinking while also enabling students to gain a fine appreciation for world literature" --Dee Horne, University of Northern British Columbia


"This text seems to have a specific and very useful direction: to approach the short story from within, as it were. It tries to map out the range of how short fiction can function thematically and stylistically." --Michael Trussler, University of Regina
