I figured 3 years is enough time to revisit the discussion. Plus, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment and a nice short story collection sounds like the perfect medicine.
As I said, you can click here to see my favorites back in 2010. But here is a list since then of the short story collections I have read and enjoyed. All links go to my review:
- Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
- This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
- A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
- What Fears Become edited by Jeani Rector
- These Children Who Come at You With Knives by Jim Knipfel
Now it is your turn. For today's Monday Discussion, please share your all time or recent favorite short story collections.
Finally, if you are looking for another take on short stories, scoot on over to the archive for the podcast Books on the Nightstand where they are running Project Short Story for all of 2013. From their website:
At Books on the Nightstand, we’re dubbing 2013 “The Year of the Short Story.” In celebration, Ann is reading one story a day, for the entire year. We’ll also be highlighting new story collections, lit magazines, and online resources for short fiction.
