Fun Fiction

February 25, 2023

This week we feature stories and novels that are playful and entertaining. Who doesn’t need an infusion of fun in the depths of February? Short stories by a classic writer and even shorter stories by one who is very much alive and kicking; an historical novel of clever frivolity by a young, but already prolific writer; a sharp debut from a Turkish-born writer; and a crime novel with an inside look at those legendary writers retreats—fun for us literary folks.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
Buyer, The Center for Fiction Bookstore
