Fiction 100 An Anthology of Short Stories

Fiction 100 An Anthology of Short Stories Free download í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Literary techniue and style International in scope it illustrates the development of short fiction from the early 19th century to the present day and features 131 traditional and contemporary works organized alphabetically by author I suspected I would I run out of review room and I did and have had to open a new version of the same book so I could finish Getting near the end now My edition has only 1113 pages so the story selection is probablypossibly different Maybe it s just the layoutformat print size83 The Secret Room by Alain Robbe Grillet A writer I ve sort of heard of but I don t know in what context It s been a while for sure Maybe a movie Anyway this one s impressively creepy gloomy and mysterious About painting a painting84 Defender of the Faith by Philip Roth An early story from PR and a good one Two eui dominant themes united in the uestion of what it means to be Jewish in America Good stuff and funny too85 We re Very Poor by Juan Rulfo A writer I d never heard of that I recall Another short and sweetbitter tale about a cow a flood and a poor girl s prospects from a child s point of view86 Absolutely Elsewhere by Dorothy L Sayers Kind of a well polished whodunit Seems very familiar Lord Peter s brain at the center along with telephones Maybe I read this one before or something very like it87 The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner by Alan Sillitoe I saw the movie way back when In the early sixties the Brits were producing a lot of gritty real life movies and this was one of them Very good writing indeed Mr Sillitoe went on to have a nice career This is the emotionalspiritual embodiment of class warfarealienation Smith reminded me at times of Lionel Asbo88 Gimpel the Fool by Isaac Bashevis Singer One I might have read long ago The title sounds familiar A story with a spiritual philosophical message though I m not sure what it is89 The Chrysanthemums by John Steinbeck JS takes us back to the Salinas Valley for something short and bitter An unsatisfactory life I wonder if Steinbeck has a thing for female discontent Part of The Long Valley90 The Catbird Seat by James Thurber Read long agohigh school as part of the Stegner s collection I think I also think that JT does NOT like loud boorish overbearing women91 The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy A classic for sure and possibly the first Tolstoy I ve read What s it about Death Life how we live our liveschoices the constraints of culturesociety etc Seems to go on a bit long but it IS a condensed version of one man s exisitence and passing And painful second thoughts92 Saint Emmanuel the Good Martyr by Miguel de Unamuno This one s different for sure but what it s about I m not sure Something to do with religiontruthspiritualitysacrifice Marilynne Robinson would love it93 A P by John Updike A amusing shortie I must ve read long ago because I did read the collection Pigeon Feathers It s about boy girl youthful empathy stuff and it s about youthful impulsiveness and idealism Kinda funny too94 Report on the Barnhouse Effect by Kurt Vonnegut Another one I probably read a long time ago as it s part of the Welcome to the Monkey House collection and I know I read at least some of that maybe This one contains the usual uirky and moralistic KV take on the sins of mankind95 The Country of the Blind by HG Wells I m still in the middle of this longish tale Pretty interesting and dramatically written My Wells experience is pretty small Some say this all a dream of the injured and dying Nunez He was described the same wayinjured and bleeding at the end of the tale as he was before he descended into the Valley96 Petrified Man by Eudora Welty An ode to American shallowness and crassness Pretty funny dialogue though I m not sure what the P Man is supposed to symbolize though97 Why I live at the PO by Eudora Welty One I read not that long ago but read this time with a bit of a different understanding All sympathy to the narrator in this tale of family craziness98 The Second Tree from the Corner by E B White EB Was Roger Angell s step father I believe This tale is about what exactly Sanityinsanity in a difficult world A bit of enlightenment comes to Trexler as he looks at a tree Life s a mystery I just re read this very brief story after reading a biography of White I paid better attention to the story the second time around Yes I would say it s about the undefinable The challenge of living99 The Man Who Was Almost a Man by Richard Wright Another head shaker to me About hopelessness and poverty perhaps Great dialogue Ironic that it s cheek by jowl with Eudora Welty who does the same thing with white southern peopleSo that s it except that I missed a story somewhere there s supposed to be a hundred I think I m gonna check right now Duplicity youthful empathy stuff and it s about Don't Try This at Home How to Win a Sumo Match Catch a Great White Shark Start an Independent Nation and Other Extraordinary Feats For Ordinary People youthful impulsiveness and idealism Kinda funny too94 Report on the Barnhouse Effect by Kurt Vonnegut Another one I probably read a long time ago as it s part of the Welcome to the Monkey House collection and I know I read at least some of that maybe This one contains the usual uirky and moralistic KV take on the sins of mankind95 The Country of the Blind by HG Wells I m still in the middle of this longish tale Pretty interesting and dramatically written My Wells experience is pretty small Some say
