Short Reads

Here is another selection of short reads:

  • ‘Goodbye, My Brother’ by John Cheever
  • ‘Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage’ by Alice Munro
  • ‘Faithless’ Carol Joyce Oates
  • ‘Viewfinder’ by Raymond Carver
  • ‘The Lottery’ by Shirley Jackson

The ‘Viewfinder’ is an excellent example of a story being told mostly through dialogue and sparse description.
