Pow Wow: American Short Fiction from Then to Now

by Ishmael Reed; Carla Blank

Condition: Very Good/very good


Da Capo Press, 2009. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. Using the yardstick that a short story is any fiction under 15,000 words, Ishmael Reed with the assistance of Carla Blank has assembled an anthology that reexamines the history of the form across a broader, more inclusive spectrum. The result is a collection that stretches the boundaries of the American literary landscape, including work ranging from animal stories of the Northwest Coast Eyaks to African-American folklore to reflections on the American Muslim experience.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
