Basically, Moffett contends that this way of telling a story is very modern and comes from our increasingly Excellent anthology that organizes short stories by narrative perspective. Used Irwin Shaw's "'Act of Faith" in conjunction with our reading of Elie Wiesel's "Night" to practice synthesizing ideas and writing thematic statements. The afterword is also insightful, in that it summarizes the development of the complex individual point of view, with internal voice and conflicts.

I read this book 40 years ago.
When I was in High School, I read this particular copy of this book. I was taking a writing class several years ago when I mentioned this book, unaware that it had been revised. The teacher hadn't heard of it, but he bought the revised version and loved it. I also purchased the revised edition and enjoyed the diversity of the stories.from what I remembered the original to be. Out of curiosity, I purchased another copy of the original and still enjoyed it. (roughly 40% of the original stories have been replaced with more diverse stories) The original was used in an all boy's school in the 1950s and 1960s so the stories replaced in the new version are more diverse (for both women and minorities) Several of the replacement stories reveal how writing has changed in those last 40 years. There are more authors who are currently popular.
But. This anthology still stands well on its own if you bear in mind what audience it was put together for. The strategy of putting stories in a sequence from interior monologue in first person through various methods of first person narration through third person limited to complete omniscient third person narration is one that should become much more familiar to literature teachers and professors all over.
The person who was teaching the writing class I attended had an MFA from the Iowa School and I was shocked that he was not more familiar with this book. I would state that anyone who is serious about writing should have well thumbed copies of several books on their reference shelf. This should be one of those books.

There are some excellent stories in this collection. Some are very dark so I will have to read this in moderation...sandwiched between reading uplifting stories from another collection perhaps?
My favorite so far is "Stone Boy".

This book offers an excellent selection of stories written in various points of view. If you want to accent your studies or if you need to see the point of view element in action, this book is the perfect source. Chapter organization is based on each type of point of view so that the reader can zero in on whatever point of view she would like to review. The authors featured are both classical writers and modern authors. After working through dozens of books on point of view, this one stands out from the others.
This book is a keeper. It belongs in the collection of any serious writer.

In my opinion, this is the best book there is for learning about "points of view." I like the fact that it is a collection of short stories rather than of excerpts from longer works.
Mall
This is a great basic collection of short stories. I was assigned this for a class, but I find myself reading the stories I wasn't even assigned! I also appreciate the authors' comments on the different narrative forms even though I don't always agree!

The first edition has the excellent story "This is My Living Room," which is omitted in the next edition. This story alone
is worth the price for showing the workings of the mind of a racist. The other stories are also very good. I just wish it
were on Kindle since I keep having to buy it as I travel around the world!

Interesting organization of stories. Great for teaching.
Far from pedantic, this book is an essential part of every writer's library. It was suggested reading for a workshop at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival which in itself is quite a recommendation.
