Short Stories From 1929
Forster's lifetime, A Passage to India explores the complexity of human relationships as it reflects against the cultural fears and prejudices during the colonial occupation of India by the British during the height of the Indian independence movement. Deeply critical of his own countrymen in a time of sharply divided views, it has been praised as one of the greatest works of fiction of the 20th century by sources such as Modern Library and Time Magazine and is a highly sought after high point of modern first editions.
Aziz, in India during the colonial occupation and independence movements. After an visit to a remote area of India, one of the women, Adela, believes to have been raped and the doctor is accused and later stands trial. At trial, Adele casts doubt on her recollection of events and Dr. This, Fitzgerald's third novel, is an icon of both the culture of the Roaring 20's, the time in which it was written, and the timeless aspirations for greatness and the darker side of the American Dream.
The Great Gatsby was one of the author's most labored and anticipated works, but the critical and popular reception failed to fulfill Fitzgerald's or the publisher's hopes. The initial print run was scheduled for 75, copies, but ended at 20, copies. Although the book's original publisher, Scribner's, kept the book in print throughout the years, sales and popular opinion flagged for several decades.
The end of the excesses of the 's resulted in literary critics of the 30's and 40's often dismissing the book as a dated period piece. By , Fitzgerald wasn't able to find a bookstore that had a copy in stock for him to buy for a friend. The perspective of time established the book's position in the literary canon.

Seemingly ahead of its time, An American Tragedy paved the way for similar works of fictionalized real-life narratives such as the Truman Capote's famed In Cold Blood. Adapted into films, plays, radio shows, and even operas, the murderous love triangle featured in An American Tragedy continues to captivate audiences nearly years after it was published.
Hemingway had already attracted attention for his spare prose style in his previous collection of short stories In Our Time. The Sun Also Rises can be considered his first real novel, since his previous full length work, The Torrents of Spring , was a parody of Sherwood Anderson that hardly reflected Hemingway's literary voice. Hemingway's direct language bordered at times on the vulgar, especially to readers of the time. The author's unconventional prose style, combined with the gorgeous but highly suggestive Hellenistic woman portrayed on the cover of the book, helped fuel market demand.
Other major publications include After Sixty: In addition to her writing and radio work, Story has devoted much of her time to teaching the craft to others through workshops and writer-in-residence programs throughout the province. In , at the age of 52, she graduated with a B.
