Fiction. Literary History & Criticism. Edited by Dan Chaon, Norah Hardin Lind, and Phong Nguyen. This third volume in the Pleiades Unsung Masters Series focuses on 1930s and 40s fiction writer Nancy Hale, whose stories helped shape the early identity of The New Yorker. By her death in 1988, Hale had slipped into obscurity, and all but one of her more than 30 books were out of print. Featuring seven of Hale's best stories and essay on her work by Ann Beattie, Debra Brenegan, Trudy Lewis, Anne Freeman, G. Thomas Tanselle, and John Beebe, this books makes the case for Hale's continuing importance to American literature.
