New Stories from the South #20: New Stories from the South, 2005by Shannon Ravenel
Synopses & Reviews
Over the past two decades, New Stories from the South has been identified as "one of the most significant and eagerly anticipated annual collections of American short stories" (Booklist). The quality of the selections and the skill of its editor have been lauded: "Excitingly original stories from new and recently emergent writers make this now-venerable annual a must for readers who mean to keep up with contemporary short fiction. . . . Ravenel is one of the most resourceful and intelligent editors in the business" (Kirkus Reviews, starred). And NPR commentator Alex Chadwick sums it up best when he calls New Stories "A good answer to the question, 'Why read fiction?'"(NPR's Morning Edition).
Excitingly original stories from new and recently emergent writers make this now-venerable annual a must for readers who mean to keep up with contemporary short fiction.
The 20th volume of the year's best short fiction with stories by Dennis Lehane, Robert Olen Butler, Tom Franklin and others.
