« back to classes page

This class will read and discuss a dozen (two each week) varied, quality short stories that originally appeared in The New Yorker, a dependable source of talented writers.  Whether familiar or new, all selections will offer the pleasure of lively discussion.  Readings will be taken from the anthology Wonderful Town: New York Stories from The New Yorker, edited by David Remnick with Susan Choi (Random House, 2000, available in paperback).  For the first class, please read Laurie Colwin’s “Another Marvelous Thing” and Jonathan Franzen’s “The Failure.”  Try to read each story twice, looking carefully at plot structure, character presentation, language and total effect.
