The new, trimmer, tenth edition features many very recent stories and commentaries by up-and-coming writers; a new Casebook on short shorts or flash fiction; and an expanded focus on why we read, study, and write about short fiction.

THE ESSAY CONNECTION is a provocative, timely collection of rhetorically arranged essays by professional and student writers. It stimulates critical thinking on ethical, social, and political issues, enabling users to make connections and write with an informed viewpoint. Essays range from the personal to the scientific and cover a variety of modes--narration, process analysis, comparison and contrast, and persuasion--to prompt users' interest in different disciplines and genres. Professionally written essays (by scientists, economists, and journalists, among others) as well as user essays inspire and motivate readers. Unlike excerpts found in other readers, most essays are printed in their entirety, thus serving as better models for user writing. Throughout the text, Bloom offers practical, clear advice on writing that complements the essays. Rich visuals, fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction provide a full set of models to bolster critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. The tenth edition offers 22 new selections to stimulate the readers' interest. An expanded argument casebook as well as new visuals, poems, and works of creative nonfiction and fiction build on the strengths of previous editions. New material on the Book Companion Website strengthens the readers' writing and reading comprehension skills.

An informal, jargon-free introduction to the fiction of 16 contemporary writers either brought up or now living in England, from Muriel Spark to Jeanette Winterson. It seeks to present a balanced view of women's writing since the 1950s and 1960s, those who attracted critical attention during the 1970s and 1980s, and those who have burst upon the literary scene more recently, including Afro-Caribbean and African women. The essays show how each of these writers treats British subjects and themes, sometimes from radically different perspectives, and how those who are daughters of immigrants see themselves as women writing on the margins of society.
