Twentieth Century American Short Stories
Most avid readers are familiar with the short stories of O. Henry, John Steinbeck, and Ernest Hemingway, to name a few. There are many other authors, known chiefly for the novel form, who have written wonderful short stories. We will explore many: Porter, Salinger, Runyon, Wharton, Malamud, Carver, etc.! Let’s meet every other week and discuss 2-3 short stories of the same author, or the same time period, or the same topic—any commonality to lend a perspective beyond the writers style, content and message. Our first session will be devoted to a discussion on the genesis of the form and then move on to Mark Twain’s, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras Country”. We will decide on future selections as a group.
