Short Story Classics

Last week, our power was out for about 8 hours. During that time, I read several classic short stories. One of the things I learned is that in literary fiction, short stories don’t have to go any where or have a point or a plot. They also don’t have to make you care about the characters apparently.

These were the classics

Sherwood Anderson: I Want to Know Why

Ray Bradbury: The Veldt

Tom Hawkins: Wedding Night

Ernest Hemingway: Hills Like White Elephants

Zora Neale Hurston: The Conscience of the Court

Jamaica Kincaid: Girl

Katherine Anne Porter: Flowering Judas

Jo Sapp: Nadine at 35: A Synopsis

James Thurber: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Darkly,
