News | 2010 | 2010 Reading List

Eighty-eight published books read in 2010. Standouts include: Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri (she did win the Pulitzer for this one, after all), The Journey Prize Stories 21 (juried by Camilla Gibb, Lee Henderson, and Rebecca Rosenblum), and Man Descending by Guy Vanderhaeghe. While there were several novels and plays I really enjoyed this year, short fiction is what affected me the most. These three collections had many stories that reached down my throat to give a good hard tug on my heart strings. Awesome stuff.
