This Week in Shorts

I wanna Be Big

The Short Story Month celebration continues all over:


  • Follow author Emma Straub on her year-long, 12-city “book tour” for her collection Other People We Married. She writes, “There are twelve stories in Other People We Married, and each story takes place in a different location. Every month for the next year, I will read a story in its location, or as close as I can get. This blog will follow my travels, my snacks, my impulse-buys, and more. For bonus points, send me a photo of OPWM in an exotic locale, and I will post it here, and send you a postcard in return.”
  • On NPR, Karen Russell explains her love for Kelly Link’s short stories.
  • At Andrew’s Book Club, writers share appreciations of recent stories and story collections.
