Frank O'Connor (1903-1966) is known primarily for his shot stories, and fine ones they are. There are seventeen of them in this Reader, and the best of them, in the words of Richard Ellmann 'stir those facial muscles which, we are told, are the same for both laughing and weeping.' Except for the masterpiece, 'Guest of the Nation, ' the stories included here have been out of print for twenty years, and one story had been previously unpublished.
