New American Stories presents diverse stories of contemporary American life and dreams lost and found, by four of the best young contemporary writers - Jhumpa Lahiri, Sherman Alexie, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Aleksandar Hemon - as performed by terrific stage and screen actors. All four writers have a unique perspective on the American experience, which is reflected in their work. Whether they are immigrants from another country, or in the case of Sherman Alexie, a Native American, they’re all writing from a voice that comes from being an outsider. They also share well-deserved, universal praise for their work.

I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
I am a very big fan of short stories and have listened to the Selected Shorts program for over 20 years. These stories were good, but none were really great. The reader were all quite good, but the stories were not my cup of tea. The American Classics is my favorite volume of stories so far.

The readers were so excellent, each one diverse.
Each had unexpected twists & well drawn characters.
Best I've heard, and I've heard plenty! Inflections superb, tone magnificent....very colorful, every one! I want more!
The "killer" and I'll say no more.
Listen, and be transported!
