The Broadview Anthology of Short Fiction – Third Edition

Welcome to the Broadview Press student site for The Broadview Anthology of Short Fiction – Third Edition. This site contains additional readings, provided as PDF files.

About the Anthology:

This selection of thirty-eight stories, from Nathaniel Hawthorne to Sherman Alexie, shows the range of short fiction in the past 150 years. The collection comprises recognized classics of the genre, and some very interesting, less often anthologized works. This third edition includes more works from the past twenty years and a greater representation of American authors. New to this edition are “Sea Oak,” a dystopian fable from George Saunders; Helen Simpson’s bittersweet story of young lovers on holiday, “Bed and Breakfast”; and “Young Lions,” Edward P. Jones’s tense, heartbreaking portrait of Washington, DC petty criminals, among other stories. Stories are organized chronologically, annotated, and prefaced by engaging short introductions. Also included is a glossary of basic critical terms.
