Carver, probably the most economic short story author of this book, communicates with his accurate, powerful Prosa in a few words what many authors of novels explain on several pages. With a shallow understating, he wrote about the disappointment of the suburbs in America in the middle of the 20th and early 20th years.

He was short-listed for the National Book Award during his "first life" when Carver almost passed away from liquor. Saunders, who won the first folio award for literature last year, is, according to Entertainment Weekly, "the champion of pleasure bombs: little blasts of a grin-stimulating wizard buried in his deep -minded, infinitely amusing fantasy flights".

Tales like "Victory Lap" show his dexterity in a mixture of humor and humor, but also his technological brilliancy, which incorporates different perspectives in a closed world. And" Sticks", a little more than one page long, is one of the most touching tales I have ever known.

Prior to this series Adichie had already composed two books in her homeland Nigeria. The book takes a look at the USA in 12 tales that investigate the experience of married men and women, families and kids, migrants, and regulars. This cover story deals with the solitude of a Nigeria woman who is moving to an America far away from her imagination.

As an eloquent and emotional author, Adichie addresses in this compilation her intimate topics of exiles, misunderstandings and man's wish to conciliate inner and outer world. In 2013, the author from Canada received the Nobel Laureate for her exceptional work as "Master of short comedy.

It also won the Man Booker International Award 2009 for its life's work and was described as a contemporary Chekhov. The first publication of this compilation was in 1922, one year before Mansfield died of TB at the aged 34. Mansfield, a groundbreaking author of modernity, was borne and raised in New Zealand before she moved to the UK, where she befriended DH Lawrence and Virginia Woolf.

One of her most famous works, the cover story is modernistic in design, with the illusory simplicity of a background that prepares a host of people for a gardentent. Well-known as a writer, Barnes won the 2011 Man Booker Award for The scythe of an Ending. Therefore his short novels are rather ignored and should not be.

This is Barnes' seventeenth volume and is a master class in its short version. The two particularly beautiful pieces in this complicity set are "Complicity", about the tender beginnings of a romantic scandal, and "East Wind", about a realty broker's relation with a mistress. A delicious range of fats that allows the user to immerse himself in one of the best watchers of personal manners.

One of the favourites in this book is "How to Be an Other Woman" from her first released self help compilation (1985), which consists almost exclusively of tales from her masters work. The nine-story début compilation won the Pulitzer Award in 1999 just after its release and was voted New York Début of the Year.

Tales of what Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times called "unusual sophistication and balance " are about the variety of the Indian-American immigration experiences and the nosy aluminum chemistry of affection and Relations. A Temporary Matter" is my special favorite in this compilation, a nice way of communicating sadness, affection and bereavement when a pair tries to confront the no-mother.

Several of the best short novels contain surprising happy times on which the story revolves. So just as I was putting this together, I got a huge parcel with this threshold of a work. This could be the most extensive compilation of short story..... ever, with an all-star line-up like Angela Carter, Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl and more, chosen by David Miller, a frahling and writing-mind.
