A Nobel Prize for Literature is the most coveted of literary distinctions. The prize has been given for over 90 years & its recipients are among the most outstanding writers of our time. An anthology of stories selected from the finest work of such writers is inevitably of high caliber. In an introduction the editors give a history of the prize & preface each selection with a biographical sketch. A truly international collection, the book reflects the shifts in literary style &, in many instances, makes available stories no longer easily accessible.
