Amazon.com description: Product Description: John Barth * Thomas Beller * Jason Brown * Frederick Busch * Andre Dubus * Bridget Rohan Garrity * Tim Gautreaux * Mary Gordon * Ralph Lombreglia * Barry Lopez * Jacob Molyneux * Joyce Carol Oates * Chris Offutt * Stewart O'Nan * Jim Shepard

15 short stories that brilliantly capture the American experience--for the best of causes.

All proceeds benefit Share Our Strength's hunger-relief programs.

Once again demonstrating the power and vitality of the short story today, America's top writers--from John Barth to Mary Gordon, Andre Dubus to Joyce Carol Oates--have generously donated their stories in this bountiful collection of new fiction.

Whether it's Andre Dubus depicting a soldier who has found God and must suffer the consequences, Barry Lopez chronicling a couple of horse thieves whose fate is as determined as the transit of the planets, or Mary Gordon writing of one woman's relationship with her blind neighbor, these stories mark the prominence of the short story in American letters,

Edited and with an introduction by Tobias Wolff, America's preeminent short-story writer, Writers Harvest 3 showcases life's small miracles, ironies, and obstacles. Each testifies to life at once seen "through a glass darkly," then powerfully vivified through the beautiful tapestry of words.

Thought-provoking, compassionate, and wonderfully entertaining, Writers Harvest 3 is a unique and exciting gathering of some of the most eloquent voices on the American literary landscape.


Share Our Strength (SOS) is one of the nation's leading anti-hunger and anti-poverty organizations. Since its inception in 1984, Share Our Strength has distributed more than $50 million to more than 1,000 anti-hunger and anti-poverty efforts worldwide.
