Great Short Stories Of The WorldGreat Short Stories Of The World by Reader’s Digest Association
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I feel that his anthology of short fiction is a must for the bookcase of every creative writer – and essential reading for every person who loves literature – especially short fiction.
The book features a selection of 71 short stories from accomplished creative writers of the world – duly translated in English where required.
Each story is unique, conveys a powerful message, and is a lesson in creative writing.
I first read this book in 1991 and these stories introduced me to many authors I had not read before – which gave me the motivation to explore their writings.
I pull out this book from my bookcase very often – open a random page – and read a story – yes – the stories can be savoured again and again – and every time you read them – you feel an epiphany.
Do read the stories in “Great Short Stories of the World” – it will be a fulfilling experience.
