Introduction - extrait

   “Paradoxically, short stories enjoy great popularity with the reading public, and today the genre seems to be going through something of a revival. Elizabeth Fallaize (Oxford University), in her recent anthology, has suggested some reasons why this might be so. She points to the way in which the prestige of the story has been raised by the awarding of prizes (...-, and the re-establishing of several literary magazines willing to publish them.

    It is also thanks to the work of Annie Mignard, whose book La Nouvelle française contemporaine is a treasure-house of information about the state of the genre today.”
