The crime stories selected for this consistently imaginative collection shun the simple whodunit formula. Instead, Eudora Welty, Patrick O'Brian, Edith Wharton, and John Cheever, along with the twenty other masterful writers found here, take the compelling fact of murder or sudden death and proceed well beyond the business of clues or alibis. The result is the two dozen chilling and unforgettably diverting tales that make up Murder & Other Acts of Literature. The authors she's chosen include distinguished writers from North and South America, Britain, Africa, and Europe; among them are realists, ironists, dramatists, and Nobelists, living and dead, each of whom understands the strangeness and danger of the murderous mind unleashed. (In the few "innocent" cases here, where no murder actually has occurred, society's rules are nonetheless violated, always with decidedly unexpected outcomes.).

Contributors include Louisa May Alcott, Anthony Trollope, A.A. Milne, Edith Wharton, Isak Dinesen, Virginia Woolf, Alice Walker, Rudyard Kipling, W.S. Gilbert, Muriel Spark, Maguib Mahfouz, William Trevor, T.H. White, Nardine Gordnimer, Patrick O'Brian, Isabel Allende, John Cheever, William Faulkner, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Paul Theroux, James Thurber, Evelyn Waugh, and Fay Weldon.
