Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Six Shorts - The finalists for the 2013 Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Award (Kindle Edition)
I teach writing (particularly the short-story) and expected these stories to be very good
but they were nothing special at all.
The group read them, were generally under-whelmed and we wondered seriously
about the selection process.
The coming of age winner we predicted, but it was mutton dressed up as lamb,
all voice but very little substance.
Try Best American Short Stories of the Century or Nathan Englander's "For the relief of Unbearable Urges"
