    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, (1966.) dj. Hardcover first edition - As Garrett explains in his introduction, this started as a classroom assignment when the real "girl in the black raincoat" had to drop out of his creative writing class, and one of the students wrote a story about her - but it soon grew into a sort of game, and eventually resulted in this very unusal collection of 41 pieces,short stories and poems - all except one written specifically for this challenge. Among the contributors are Shelby Foote, Annie Dillard, May Sarton, Babette Deutsch, Carolyn Kizer, Kelly Cherry, Mary Lee Settle, Fred Chappell, William Manchester, Donald Justice with Mark Strand, Barbara Harris, David Slavitt and many others. Brief notes on the contributors. 368 pp,
