[UPDATE] Critical Insights: The American Short Story--critical reception chapter needed (abstracts due January 24, 2014)

updated: 
Friday, January 3, 2014 - 11:31am
Michael Cocchiarale (Widener University) and Scott D. Emmert (University of Wisconsin—Fox Valley)

The editors, who produced the scholarly collections Upon Further Review: Sports and American Literature (Praeger, 2004) and Critical Insights: American Sports Fiction (Salem, 2013), have already accepted proposals for nearly all the chapters of The American Short Story volume (Grey House Publishing). As it stands now, the book will contain chapters on writers ranging from Henry James to Jhumpa Lahiri. Some chapters will focus on intriguing subgenres of the short story such as the short story cycle and micro fiction.

The editors still need a 4000-5000 word critical reception chapter that surveys major pieces of criticism on the American short story and the major
concerns of critics over the years.

THE LEGACY OF SHERWOOD ANDERSON'S GROTESQUES IN THE AMERICAN SHORT STORY

"It was the truths that made the people grotesques. The old man had quite an elaborate theory concerning the matter. It was his notion that the moment one of the people took one of the truths to himself, called it his truth, and tried to live his life by it, he became a grotesque and the truth he embraced became a falsehood."
