Your beautifully written comments make me want to get another Alice Munro book to read. I will borrow from the library, but watch for a copy to come into our book sort and buy one. I am in charge of the adult fiction, and even though the books sell for $1.00, they are a tough sell. The used book stores here will only take pocket books and the tradebacks, and 'readers' sell their books back to the used bookstores!

This sounds very interesting, Karen. Yet another author I haven't read before, but one I'd like to check out! :0)

Okay, even more reason for me to overcome my natural aversion to short stories... Will bump it up a few levels on the TBR list. Wish it luck! ;-)

Sometimes short stories are just the ticket. Three of my most beloved writers use this form often; John Mortimer, Rex Stout, and P.G. Wodehouse. They use the same characters as in longer works, but just tell a shorter story. I haven't read too many others except for F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. I am always amazed at how much can be said in so few words. A whole life experience told in 20 pages. Speaking of pages, is there a number that moves the short story into the novella category? Maybe what I call short stories are really not?
