Discovering Fiction is a three-level anthology of contemporary and classic short stories that teaches literary appreciation, reading skills, grammar, and vocabulary. The series features such well-known authors as Isaac Asimov, Sandra Cisneros, Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Stories in the higher two levels are unsimplified, while Discovering Fiction: An Introduction, the newest title in the anthology, includes stories that have been simplified. This allows lower-level students to enjoy classic North American literature, including works by such authors as Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Sinclair Lewis, and Morley Callaghan.
Discovering Fiction: An Introduction also includes an audio CD of the readings.
