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.
