Seized by Love. Story of Love. A Very Braden Christmas. Lovers at Heart, Reimagined. You all got a lot of nerve asking a storywriter for an all-time favorite story. With the understanding that this is a somewhat inherently problematic proposition for me, I have decided to turn to my favorite living short-story writer. For my money, Means is pound for pound the best there is. His stories are often violent and beautiful at the same time, and perhaps most interesting to me is that they often defy standard Freytagian narrative structure and logic. Narrowing it down to David Means was tough enough, but picking a favorite of his stories is brutal.
The protagonist has more questions than answers: about the nature of love, the way to connect, the relationship between humans and animals, and the profound alienation of a person in the modern world. Williams answers them with a very strange road trip and a deer leg lamp with a preference for Kierkegaard, and the resulting tale is odd, droll, and quite unexpectedly moving.
This perfect short story is set in a future dystopian Los Angeles on one single afternoon. A virus has caused most humans to lose the capacity to speak or read language, and Rye, the protagonist, is attempting to cross the city to find what remains of her family. The story is a master class in how to use every action, every description, every memory to build character and move the story forward.
Game of Love (The Remingtons, Book One: Love in Bloom Series) - Melissa Foster - Wattpad
One of my favorite short stories was written and published about eleven years ago, but I only discovered it less than a year ago, in September, , when its author, Maggie Shipstead, read from it while visiting Lexington, Kentucky, as part of the lineup for the Kentucky Women Writers Conference. Shipstead read only half of her story, and so, immediately after, I was forced to seek it out. I read the rest of it in a fast gulp and then, its hold on me so strong, I assigned it, last minute, to one of the classes I taught that semester.
I also find myself drawn to stories that manage quiet emotions and quiet moments and human longing in a way I find that, in my own fiction, I cannot. A neurotic, parodically self-aware author waits to discuss his archives with a librarian. The rest of the story, more or less, is what happens in between.
