    The range of voices assembled here is extraordinary: from lyrical realism to satirical comedy, from sociopolitical narratives of immigration and identity to gene-bending metaphysical fantasies. Among the writers are some who have already published several books, and some who are still on their first; writers with origins elsewhere - from Russia to China to Nigera - as well as writers from across the United States. The stories themselves take readers from Riga to Hollywood, from Peru to Texas, from Egypt to Connecticut, with literary styles and plots that are innovative, comic, poignant, and heartbreaking. Welcome to this landmark collection. Contributors' Profiles. 431p.

    50 Essays: A Portable Anthology is the best-selling value-priced reader in the country because its virtues don't stop at the price. Its carefully chosen selections include enough classic essays to reassure instructors, and enough high-interest and high-quality contemporary readings to keep things lively and relevant for students. The editorial apparatus is more extensive than in competing value readers, but still is flexible and unobtrusive enough to support a variety of approaches to teaching composition. In its third edition, 50 Essays continues to offer selections that instructors enjoy teaching, at a price students won't resist, but with more editorial emphasis than before on the critical thinking and academic writing skills of today's composition courses.
