I read most of this, I did.
I believe this collection is a great way to get a broad swath of samples through the history of the American short story. I'd recommend as Oates does and read in chronological order. If you don't have time I really enjoyed Saul Bellow, Ursula K. Le Guin and Tobias Wolff's stories among the authors I have never read before. ( )

This book includes two short stories that finally made me understand that essence of the Black American experience where so many other attempts have failed. Sonny's Blues (James Baldwin) and Battle Royal (Ralph Ellison). Other stories I liked: There Will Come Soft Rains (Bradbury), Fleur (Louise Erdich), The Management of Grief (Bharati Mukherjee), and The Things They Carries (Tim O'Brien). ( )
