Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award–the Shortlist!

I want to read a collection of short stories with my Literary Masters book groups this coming season.  We are absolutely spoiled for choice!  Do we read something from Lydia Davis, the most recent International Man Booker Award winner?  Or perhaps we catch up on one of Alice Munro’s collections?  She, too, is an International Man Booker Award winner.  Or perhaps we’ll read the collection from the winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award.  The shortlist has been announced:

  • Tea at the Midland and other stories – David Constantine 
  • Siege 13 – Tamas Dobozy
  • Black Vodka – Deborah Levy
  • Black Dahlia & White Rose
  • We’re Flying – Peter Stamm
  • Battleborn – Claire Vaye Watkins

Congratulations to these authors!  The winner will be announced in early July.  For more info, click here.
