I have new appreciation for a couple of stories by Joyce, Faulkner and Hemingway, but especially Faulkner's "That Evening Sun."
I would like to read more by the South African author, Nadine Gordimer, after reading her story, "Six Feet of the Country" in light of my sojourn there in 1995. A couple of other stories I thoroughly enjoyed where O. Henry's "Mammon and the Archer" and A.E. Coppard's "Arabesque - The Mouse," although neither story reflects the usual style I generally appreciate. Overall,
