Reseña del editor:

Contemporary American Fiction concentrates on a group of writers who have achieved prominence in the '80s, and in particular those writers anthologized in Granta's two highly influential collections, Dirty Realism and More Dirt. The book includes a major essay on Raymond Carver, arguably the most important literary figure of the decade; there is also a discussion of the work of Richard Ford and Tobias Wolff, friends of Carver, whose writing shows similar sensibilities.
The last decade has seen a revival of interest in the short story; special attention is paid here to the emerging group of women writers--Bobbie Ann Mason, Joy Williams, Jayne Anne Phillips and Elizabeth Tallent, among others--whose stories continue the tradition of Eudora Welty, Willa Cather and Flannery O'Connor.
This study is a wide-ranging and readable introduction to the American 'New Wave' of writers, and contains interviews with some of the key figures. It will be of interest to anyone who has read and enjoyed the most vibrant writing to have come out of the U.S. for years.
