Short Stories & Articles BY JAMES JONES

"Frederick L. Allen printed this one in the June 1949 Harper's. We argued so much over it that Allen sent me back free the ms of the other story he bought, "Just Like the Girl," saying he wasn't up to it a second time. We argued over things like the fact that Allen wrote into my story a paragraph explaining it was Hawaii and Pearl Harbor. I refused to allow this. We argued over things like the abbreviation of lieutenant. I didn't want a period after it. Allen wanted a period after it. We compromised by spelling it out." --James Jones, introduction to the short story "The Way It Is"
