American literature - American literature - Fiction: The little magazines that helped the growth of the poetry of the era also contributed to a development of its fiction. Hemingway’s early short stories and his first novels, The Sun Also Rises (1926) and A Farewell to Arms (1929), were full of the existential disillusionment of the Lost Generation expatriates. Another lyrical and autobiographical writer, whose books have faded badly, was Thomas Wolfe, who put all his strivings, thoughts, and feelings into works such as Look Homeward, Angel (1929) and Of Time and the River (1935) before his early death in 1938.

Science-fiction and fantasy magazines began to be published in the United States in the 1920s. Stories with science-fiction themes had been appearing for decades in pulp magazines such as Argosy, but there were no magazines that specialized in a single genre until 1915, when Street & Smith, one of the major pulp publishers, brought out Detective Story Magazine.

This short story inspired some strong reactions from the public upon publication - and the conversation continues today as to its frank depiction of the nature of good and evil. Again, we won’t spoil anything for you, except to say that A Good Man Is Hard to Find is well worth your time. Not so much a short story as it is flash fiction, Sticks is written from the perspective of a young man whose father has an unusual habit: dressing up a crucifix that’s built of out a metal pole in the yard. They are told from the perspective of characters from the American South, as they deal with social issues like racism, religious hypocrisy, gender roles, and more.

Readers who enjoy short stories will find a wealth of pleasure in this collection of early twenty century American fiction. Its pages are filled with comedy, tragedy, romance, and adventure - the elements that made short stories a favorite pastime during a period when the pace of life was slower and Americans lived closer to nature and the land. Herein are stories of heroes and heroines that readers can identify with - ordinary people caught up on everyday life. These enlightening anecdotes bring to life the genuineness and a work ethic of a generation that were devoted to the careful preservation of the land and abiding respect for the family.

Loving this book. The author took careful pains to leave the letters and diary entries of women in their own words, an imperfect and sometimes hard to follow mish mosh of spelling and abbreviation errors. But I love the format and it gives you a peek at the banality of everyday life vs the fear and difficulty of walking all day and caring for your families needs in almost unimaginable circumstance. It is exactly what I was looking for to fuel my own project - a family history book.

Finding this book accidently in a book store, I was hypnotized by the pashion of the writers for the American farm. Even though raised in the city, the book stirred within me those farming roots of my ancestors. The stories will make you laugh, cry, and wistfully dream of simpler times.
