shining the spotlight on short story collections

Two Short Review Authors up for Books to Talk About in 2009 Awards

Good news for the short story: Alison MacLeod, about whose short story collection 15 Modern Tales of Attraction our reviewer said “Here is an author unafraid to push at the shape of what a story can be, what it can say,” and Sophie Hannah, author of The Fantastic Book of Everybody’s Secrets, about which our reviewer said “Hannah writes with real wit and a rich vein of Northern humour ” have both been nominated as one of the finalists for the Spread the Word 50 Books to Talk About in 2009. Read the reviews of 15 Modern Tales of Attraction and The Fantastic Book of Everybody’s Secrets. Then go and vote at Spread the Word, and make sure some of the books being talked about in 2009 are short story collections!
