ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the book "Stories in the Modern Manner From the Partisan Review." This collection of short stories is startling, at first encouraging, then puzzling, and finally a little depressing. It can be considered a tribute to the publicity value of "The Partisan Review," from which the stories have been chosen. The story, "In Dreams Begin Responsibilities," has been around long enough to begin to suffer from age. The earnest symbolism of Alberto Moravia's story "The Human Voice" leaves his fans as wooden puppets.
