But when that silence is broken we bend forward and listen. That was how I came to choose the stories in this anthology. In the voices that tell them I heard something I couldn't ignore and in the matter of the stories themselves, the people who inhabit them and what they do, I saw something I couldn't look away from. The writers here represent no school. They see things in different, even contradictory ways. Taken together, their stories express a variety of responses not only to the lives that they record, but also to the possibilities of language and form. One thing that all these writers have in common beyond the fact of their talent is that however they go about their business, they do mean business. They speak to us, without flippancy, about things that matter. Which is not to say that these stories are grave. They aren't. Some of them are funny. Nor are they particularly instructive morally, or spiritually uplifting. There are a few stories in here that I would positively disapprove of if they weren't so good, and so honest. The truth is not always uplifting. But these writers, each one of them, is interested in what it means to be human, willing to say that unspeakable thing which everyone else is too coy, or too frightened, or too polite to say. ' Tobias Wolff, from the Introduction.
