Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everybody! Somehow it’s already the last Friday in February. Half the time I feel like February will never end, and the other half I feel like it’s over before I know it. To celebrate February’s status as the shortest month of the year, let’s round out the Friday Fifteen with some short story collections:

1. The Complete Short Stories by Ernest Hemingway
My ideal Hemingway is served in small doses. “Hills Like White Elephants” is great, though.

2. Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters & Seymour: An Introduction by J.D. Salinger
A must for Glass family fans, especially if you’ve read “A Perfect Day for Bananafish.”

3. Selected Stories by Alice Munro
Munro is excellent, but mostly I remember the intense author photo on my library copy.

4. The Rose and the Beast: Fairy Tales Retold by Francesca Lia Block
Cool Block-style spins on classic fairy tales, including lesser-known favorites like “Snow White and Rose Red.”

5. Best American Non-Requied Reading 2002 ed. Dave Egger and Michael Cart
My first foray into Best American. Would be curious to go back to this one.
