Summary
"The O. Henry Prize Stories 2017 contains twenty prize-winning stories chosen from thousands published in literary magazines over the previous year. The winning stories evoke lives both near and distant: a Californian teenager in rehab, a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka, young female factory workers in Bangladesh, a retired couple in Nova Scotia. Anchored by situations as varied and fraught as a car crash in the Italian mountains, a domestic deception unmasked in postwar Germany, and an eerie backyard confrontation between a dog and a cobra, the stories here are uniformly breathtaking. They are accompanied by essays from the eminent jurors on their favourites, observations from the winning writers on what inspired them, and a comprehensive resource list of the many magazines and journals, both large and small, that publish short fiction." --Publisher description
Summary
A latest annual anthology selected by the O. Henry Prize committee contains 20 award-winning stories as published in literary magazines and depicting a wide range of genres, in a volume complemented by juror essays, writer observations and an extensive resource list of magazines
