The Short Review

shining the spotlight on short story collections

Week Links: Terrible Girls, and Women, and others…

Doris Lessing died on 17th November aged 94. Here’s one of her short stories, To Room 19.

I also read Television, by Lydia Davis.

I want to read The Terrible Girls by Rebecca Brown, November’s selection at the consistently erudite and exciting Emily Books.


Reading the city: Gimbal, a project from Comma Press, and Literature Across Frontiers, looks interesting.

“Frankly it’s a bitch to get into history without selling your soul.” How I Beat the Devil by Paul Murray shortlisted for  the Irish Book Award, & there are a few more I haven’t read yet…

Happy 2nd birthday to The Junket magazine, publishing short fiction, amongst other things (here’s Making Of by Ned Beauman).
