My May short stories column is up at PopMatters. This month, we have some of the finest fiction from five of the ten writers in Michelle Dean’s book, Sharp (my review is also linked in the column).
While these writers — Dorothy Parker, Rebecca West, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, and Nora Ephron — changed the 20th-century intellectual scene in the US with their essays and reviews, they also wrote some timeless short stories and novels.
All the works are linked and free to read online. Enjoy.
