Summary (From the publisher):

"From the classics of Welty, Oates, and O'Connor to the latest stories of Mason, Erdrich, Atwood, and Le Guin, this anthology shows the astonishing range of contemporary women's fiction in North America," writes Elaine Showlater. For all the diversity of the stories—in subject, in style, in setting, in mood—they have one thing in common: every one is a joy to read and an outstanding example of the fiction writer's art.
