Description

Under 25 contains early writings of such distinguished Duke University graduates as William Styron, Mac Hyman, Reynolds Price, Anne Tyler, James Applewhite, and Fred Chappell. All of the pieces were written either when their authors were undergraduates or very recent graduates, which makes for a collection of stories and poems which is youthful and energetic, but never naive.
