The American Short Story and Me
Memoir by preeminent American literature scholar and teacher Linda Wagner-Martin on the role of short fiction in her career. Reflects on the evolving publishing industry over the past five decades and her unwavering commitment to explication, among other methodologies, in research and teaching. Closes by identifying short stories worthy of future study. Brief references to Hemingway throughout. Wagner-Martin's thoughtful retrospection exemplifies above all that though our greatest teachers may retire from the classroom, they never stop teaching.
