Henry Culyer Bunner is considered a comedic genius of the short story form. Known for choosing distinctly American themes and characters, his stories are often seen as trivial, merely expanded anecdotes, yet they are so vitally treated that they grip and remain, and, often, lift and chasten. Here is “The Nice People,” one of his best known sketches—a story of people, assumptions, and societal expectations.  Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
