All orders are sent via Royal Mail and are tracked: choose from standard or premium delivery.

This collection is a companion to the long-established and highly successful Modern Short Stories One and its essential aims are the same: to offer stories of high literary quality which, though written for adults, can be enjoyed and appreciated by adolescents. The fifteen stories included are by distinguished writers from Africa, America, Australia, India, Ireland, Italy and Great Britain; and within their artistic context several of them deal with the special personal and social concerns of society today.

The collection includes stories by the likes of Dorothy Parker, Maeve Binchy, Garrison Keillor, Peter Carey, Flannery O’Connor and Nadine Gordimer.


Jim Hunter is the author of three studies of Stoppard including About Stoppard and The Faber Critical Guide to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Jumpers, Travesties and Arcadia, as well as of other critical works and novels. A former teacher and headmaster, he is now an associate lecturer with the Open University.
