    Unlike the other arts, American literature has been a powerful, influential, and leading aspect of American culture. By turns sedate and mercurial and possessing a moral mind set of various social values, the American short story reveals in its pages the psyche of a growing, sprawling nation whose sense of destiny has always been larger than life. Here are seven masterpieces that will make you smile, make you frown, and leave you pondering the mystery that surrounds the soul of a great nation.

    James says: "Beautifully performed!"
    "Stop the Music!"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who can't listen to a story without music.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story selection is first rate.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Stop the music! These stories were meant to be read - they stand on their own and the addition of sound effects is imbecilic!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't ever again insult great American literature with the addition of music and sound effects!
