Ten outstanding short stories to reading in 2017
Each evening after supper, before I begin to write (scripts), I look around for a tale and reread it. From Upmanyu Chatterji's "Three Seven and the Blue Gay Gene" from Open Magazin to Callan Wink's "Off the Track" by Ecotone, I published 292 stories in 2016.
This is Cynthia Ozick's tale of Sidney and her relation to her parent - her old man, an old quaint lyricist, and her hostess, who led her life with leniency. I like Etgar Keret to write short stories. "Sudden....." starts with a mousy man with a weapon asking the playwright to tell him a tale.... I don't know how to describe the rest of the tale, because it's simpler to tell this tale than to describe it.
It' s difficult to make up a tale when the gun is pointed at the tip of the gun. The tale of a young pair, Shoba and Shukumar, comes from Jhumpa Lahiri's first short stories library, Interpreter of Maladies. This beautiful short novel I found while studying Michael Chabon's Moonglow's reviews in the New York Times.
In his introductory remarks, he himself explained the context of the novel. The novel tells the tale of the recently diorced Laura, who lives in the upscale home of Hana - a girlfriend of her girlfriend who travels to the USA.
The beautiful tale about a man who goes to the kennel with his girlfriend's boy to see a Pippin baboon is the cover of Thomas Pierce's short storys. In November 2016, when the death of the great William Trevor came to my attention, I was reading all his stories that I had written over the years and wrote "The Woman of the House".
" In retrospect I might have posed "The Dressmaker's Child", but I picked this one, a mystical tale about an Irishman hiring two Europes men to draw his home where he is living with his martina. It' not a enigma - I should find a better way to describe this capricious history.
I die to study Viet Thanh Nguyen's The Sympathizer for two reasons: first, that it won the Pulitzer Prize of Fairy Tales in 2016, and second, that I liked to hear this tale about Mr. Ly's two parents, where the first married woman, who is living in the USA, is visiting his second one in Saigon.
Everybody who listened to the tale said how Phuong's dad called his second child after his first. In the short notes that the first woman Ly, the mum of Phuong's eponymous cousin, sent home each year, her happiness was confirmed by recording her children's size, body and performance in bullets.
Phuong's namesake, for example, was seven years older, fifteen centimetres older, twenty kilograms lighter, and according to the photos attached to the letter, she had lighter, cleaner skins, whiter, smoother whites and dandruff, clothes, footwear and make-up, which became increasingly trendy with the completion of a girl's enrolment first, then an élite education, followed by a medecine and then a residence in Chicago.
The Proprietress " is a tale about Susu Jin, who came from Beijing to do Susu's testimony after the death of Susu's man and a female reporter. Additional literature: These are my stories from 2015 and 2014.
