Story Collections: Contemporary Classics, New Voices, and Experimental Writing

May 30, 2020

At the Center for Fiction, we are forever extolling the virtues of the short form. The ability to capture a life, an entire landscape, a range of emotions, a fully formed character, even a whole world in few pages has always seemed remarkable artistry. Here are some recent collections, filled with gravity, humor and playfulness—some harrowing, some poignant, all imaginative and inventive.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
