Short Stories on Sunday

cal

At Harper Perennial, where I work, we traffic in stories of all kinds. And we have a special fondness for the short story—self-contained, crystalline, newborn, perfect. This year we’re celebrating the thriving art of the story by sharing a new one every week: most of them new, a few of them classics, from authors you know and some you don’t, each of them treasurable in its language or wit or human insight. And we’d love to have you join us! Watch this space and enjoy.

Check out this new blog by HarperPerennial called Fifty-Two Stories.

  1. Thanks for pointing that out — looks like an easy way to get access to great stories. I recently read a couple of excellent short story collections: Laren Groff’s Delicate Edible Birds and Jhumpa Lahiri’s Unaccustomed Earth. I’d recommend them both.

    • Thanks for your comment. I think Jhumpa Lahiri is just wonderful. I read The Interpreter of Maladies and the first half of Unaccustomed Earth. I love her writing style. I think her story “The Third and Final Continent” is one of my all time favorite short stories. I hadn’t heard of Delicate Edible Birds. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I’ll have to put it on my list.
