Esta antología exclusiva, preparada especialmente por Richard Ford, contiene sesenta y cinco relatos escritos entre los años 1820 y 1999 por escritores nominalmente americanos - es decir, escritores en posesión de la ciudadanía de los Estados Unidos- y pretende mostrar no sólo lo mejor de la cuentística estadounidense, sino también la diversidad y la riqueza continuada de la prosa norteamericana durante los últimos ciento setenta y cinco años. Muchos de los cuentos contenidos en este volumen jamás habían sido traducidos al castellano. Entre los autores antologados se encuentran Washington Irving, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry James, Jack London, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Paul Bowles, Raymond Carver, T. C. Boyle y el propio Richard Ford. ( )
