This is a collection of short stories by American authors. The translated title is incorrect - it should be "Anthology of American short stories" instead of "Anthology of the American Story", which is very misleading.

Great! I often find this "translations" in book titles and I think they should not be there to begin with. Thank you Abcdarian.
