A collection of famous authors' first or very early fiction as it appeared in the prizewinning journal Ploughshares, Breaking into Print presents some of the freshest and most satisfying fiction of the past three decades: "Going After Cacciato" by Tim O'Brien, "Gemcrack" by Jayne Anne Phillips, "Expensive Gifts" by Sue Miller, "Ollie, Oh . . ." by Carolyn Chute, "In the Dark" by Edward P. Jones, "After Rosa Parks" by Janet Desaulniers, "Approximations" by Mona Simpson, "Unicycle" by Howard Norman, "Little White Sister" by Melanie Rae Thon, "Displacement" by David Wong Louie, "Back" by Susan Straight, "Mary in the Mountains" by Christopher Tilghman, "A Wronged Husband" by David Gates, "Proper Library" by Carolyn Ferrell, and "The Infinite Passion of Expectation" by Gina Berriault.
