Description - Granta Book of the American Short Story by Richard Ford
In the fourteen years since, Ford has been reading new stories and re-reading old ones and selecting new favourites.

Packer. None of the stories (though a few of the writers) were in the first volume.Richard Ford, one of the finest American novelists and short story writers, introduced the first Granta Book of the American Short Story, which Granta published in 1992. It became the definitive anthology of American short fiction written in the last half of the twentieth century.
