Description - So the Story Goes by John T. Irwin
Since its founding in 1979, the Johns Hopkins Poetry and Fiction series has published forty volumes of short fiction, beginning with Guy Davenport's acclaimed Da Vinci's Bicycle. The series was launched with two guiding principles: to publish works of short fiction exhibiting formal excellence and strong emotional appeal and to publish writers at all stages of their careers. So the Story Goes gathers the best short fiction of the series, works exhibiting wit, elegance, and wisdom. Writing about a wide variety of subjects and in a multitude of styles, the twenty writers collected here share a mastery of language and an extraordinary ability to entertain: Ellen Akins, Steve Barthelme, Glenn Blake, James Boylan, Richard Burgin, Avery Chenoweth, Guy Davenport, Tristan Davies, Stephen Dixon, Judith Grossman, Josephine Jacobsen, Greg Johnson, Jerry Klinkowitz, Michael Martone, Jack Matthews, Jean McGarry, Robert Nichols, Joe Ashby Porter, Frances Sherwood, and Robley Wilson.
