Single Scene Short Stories

Edited by Margaret Bishop

The thirty-three works collected in Single Scene Short Stories each have one remarkable quality-the whole of the story takes place in one scene, one geographical coordinate, one window of time. To think of it dramatically, it is a story presented on a stage with no change of setting or costume, no voice-over summarizing or carrying the viewer from here to there. This collection contains some of the best single scene short stories ever written, the modern classics of this form.

Stories include:

"House Hunting," Michael Chabon

"The Daughter of Albion," Anton Chekhov

"The Ninth in E Minor," Fred Busch

"Crickets," Robert Olen Butler

"Intimacy," Raymond Carver

"The Nice Restaurant," Mary Gaitskill

"Hills Like White Elephants," Ernest Hemingway

"San Francisco," Amy Hempel

"Eveline," James Joyce

"Wine," Doris Lessing

"A Ruse," Guy de Maupassant

"In the Warehouse," Joyce Carol Oates

"Revelation," Flannery O'Connor

"Mrs. Carrington and Mrs. Crane," Dorothy Parker

"Wants," Grace Paley
