A Good Fit for Today’s Little Screens: Short Stories

la_readingcomprehensionShort stories are enjoying a renaissance, according to Leslie Kaufman in the New York Times article – A Good Fit for Today’s Little Screens: Short Stories.  A few favorite authors of novels have recently succumbed to short story collections that are worth looking for…

  • Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia –  short story collection: Vampires in the Lemon Grove
  • Jess Walter, author of  Beautiful Ruins – short story collection: We Live in Water
  • Amber Dermont, author of 2012 bestseller The Starboard Sea – short stories: Damage Control

Kaufman suggests these shorts are perfect for the digital age – quick and easy to download as a Kindle Single – fast reads for travel too.
