EBook The O. Henry Prize Stories 2015 (EPUB, PDF)

by Laura Furman

Book review

The O. Henry Prize Stories 2015 gathers twenty of the best short stories of the year, selected from thousands published in literary magazines. The winning stories span the globe—from the glamorous Riviera to an Eastern European shtetl, from a Native American reservation to a tiny village in Thailand. But their characters are universally recognizable and utterly compelling, whether they are ex-pats in Africa, migrant workers crossing the Mexican border, Armenian immigrants on the rough streets of East Hollywood, or pioneers in nineteenth-century Idaho. Accompanying the stories are the editor's introduction, essays from the eminent jurors on their favorite stories, observations from the winning writers on what inspired them, and an extensive resource list of magazines.Finding Billy White FeatherPERCIVAL EVERETTThe SealsLYDIA DAVISKilifi CreekLIONEL SHRIVERThe Happiest Girl in the Whole USA MANUEL MUNOZA Permanent Member of the FamilyRUSSELL BANKSA Ride out of PhraoDINA NAYERIOwl EMILY RUSKOVICHThe Upside-Down WorldBECKY HAGENSTONThe Way Things Are GoingLYNN FREEDThe History of HappinessBRENDA PEYNADOThe Kingsley Drive ChorusNAIRA KUZMICHWord of MouthEMMA TORZSCabinsCHRISTOPHER MERKNERMy Grandmother Tells Me This StoryMOLLY ANTOPOLThe Golden RuleLYNNE SHARON SCHWARTZAbout My AuntJOAN SILBERBa BaboonTHOMAS PIERCESnow BlindELIZABETH STROUTI, BuffaloVAUHINI VARABirdsong from the RadioELIZABETH MCCRACKENFor author interviews, photos, and more, go to www.ohenryprizestories.com
