Reimagining Realism
A New Anthology of Late Nineteenth- and Early Twentieth-Century American Short Fiction
Edited by Charles A. Johanningsmeier and Jessica E. McCarthy

This fresh, diverse anthology of American short fiction challenges readers to interrogate commonly held ideas about the genres of realism and naturalism. Little-known writers and crucial voices from underrepresented groups join stalwarts such as Stephen Crane, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Mark Twain to offer a more inclusive perspective on American history and culture from the Civil War through World War I.
