A man stands on Owl Creek Bridge with his hands tied, preparing to face death by hanging. Then the ground slips out from under him, the rope breaks, and he has a moment to reimagine his future. Praised for its experimental shifts in time and surprise ending, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" is not one to miss. It has been hailed by Kurt Vonnegut as "the greatest American short story."
