Love Stories from the New Yorker(1997)
An anthology of stories edited by Roger Angell
For decades The New Yorker has kept the short story in America's literary consciousness. While the sales of novels have eclipsed those of short stories in the marketplace, short-story writers take comfort in the fact that each week their craft is showcased in the pages of one of the country's best-known publications. Now Roger Angell, a senior editor at The New Yorker, has assembled a collection of stories by the likes of John Updike, Alice Munro, Woody Allen, and Raymond Carver. Culled from more than 30 years of issues, these stories are united by the theme of love, a term that covers a multitude of emotions: romantic love, platonic love, parental love, filial love, and love for mankind, not to mention lost love, twisted love, nostalgic love.... These 38 stories cover them all.
