An arresting collection of contemporary fiction at its best, these stories explore a vast range of subjects, from love and deception to war and the insidious power of class distinctions. However clearly spoken, in voices sophisticated, cunning, or na*ve, here is fiction that consistently defies our expectations. Selected from thousands of stories in hundreds of literary magazines, the twenty prize-winning stories are accompanied by essays from each of the three eminent jurors on which stories they judged the best, and observations from all twenty prizewinners on what inspired them. "The Room" William Trevor "The Scent of Cinnamon" Charles Lambert "Cherubs" Justine Dymond "Galveston Bay, 1826" Eddie Chuculate "The Gift of Years" Vu Tran "The Diarist" Richard McCann "War Buddies" Joan Silber "Djamilla" Tony D'Souza "In a Bear's Eye" Yannick Murphy "Summer, with Twins" Rebecca Curtis "Mudder Tongue" Brian Evenson "Companion" Sana Krasikov "A Stone House" Bay Anapol "The Company of Men" Jan Ellison "City Visit" Adam Haslett "The Duchess of Albany" Christine Schutt "A New Kind of Gravity" Andrew Foster Altschul "Gringos" Ariel Dorfman "El Ojo de Agua" Susan Straight "The View from Castle Rock" Alice Munro… (més)

I'm calling it quits on this one. I tried to like it, but after reading more than a quarter of the stories in this collection, not one of them moved me at all. I can picture all the authors, sitting at home, dressed in black turtlenecks and hunched over their keyboards, maybe smoking thin cigarettes. They just have that literary coolness to them that (to me) winds up just plain inaccessible.

I tried, I failed. What else is new? ( )

I picked up this short story collection because one of the authors was a professor I had in college. Because this is a collection, I can't really summarize or give a "star" rating, but I will say that even when I didn't particularly like what happened in a story, one of the reasons I enjoy short stories is that I can appreciate the form quite separate from what goes on in the narrative. Did the story make me think or surprise me? Did anything stay with me so that I had to wait a bit before moving on to the next one? With that in mind, "Mudder Tongue" by Brian Evenson, "The Gift of Years" by Vu Tran, and "The Scent of Cinnamon" by Charles Lambert stood out to me. It's a pretty eclectic mix, and definitely worth a look.
