The eight short stories in this collection, by Marcel Ayme, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Raymond Queneau and other French writers, have been selected for their literary merit and as representative of twentieth-century French writing. The English translations that are printed in a parallel text are literal rather than literary, and there are additional notes on the text. This volume is intended primarily to help English-speaking students of French, but the stories also stand on their own and make excellent reading in either language.

This collection of French short stories in translation expands our idea of French writing by including new stories by women writers and by authors of Francophone origin. Spanning the centuries from the late eighteenth to the late twentieth, the collection opens with a rumbustious tale from the Marquis de Sade, takes in the masters of the nineteenth century, from Stendhal and Balzac to Maupassant, and reaches to Quebec, Africa, and the French Caribbean in the twentieth century. Women writers include relatively well known figures such as Renee Vivien, Colette, and Beauvoir, and newer writers such as Assia Djebar, Christiane Baroche, and Annie Saumont. The French short story is a rich and diverse medium, but all the stories selected share a common characteristic: they make exciting reading.
