Review

For those new to short stories, the quality and breadth of what is being showcased here, will not easily be bettered. Moreover, the experiential difference that contemporary short stories offer, when compared to novel reading - the unique register they can strike - makes this collection all the more valuable. -- Tamim Sadikali * Bookmunch * I suspect that Nicholas Royle, editor of Best British Short Stories 2017, was mindful that he not only had to choose the "best" stories of the year, but also to create a book with some variety that would appeal to as many readers as possible. Consequently, of the twenty stories he chose, some had to be simple and straightforward, with clear, transparent prose and enough background explanatory context to be easily accessible to the reader, while others were inevitably elliptical and puzzling, drawing attention to the language itself, experimenting with form, and refusing to help the reader understand the significance of the story. -- Charles May * Reading the Short Story * Virtually every story in Best British Short Stories 2017 circles around something unspoken. This is not officially the theme of the collection, but it's easy to read these pieces in dialogue with one another, as they explore what it means to be unspeakable. -- Eleanor Franzen * Litro * For those new to short stories, the quality and breadth of what is being showcased here, will not easily be bettered. Moreover, the experiential difference that contemporary short stories offer, when compared to novel reading - the unique register they can strike - makes this collection all the more valuable. * Bookmunch *

Virtually every story in Best British Short Stories 2017 circles around something unspoken. This is not officially the theme of the collection, but it’s easy to read these pieces in dialogue with one another, as they explore what it means to be unspeakable.
