Short Stories We Love

The 2010 Giller shortlist shone a light on short story collections. Across the country, people reading Alexander MacLeod's Light Lifting and Sarah Selecky's This Cake Is for the Party at the end of long, hectic days were struck by the beauty of devouring a story a night. We basked in the sense of completion, thought about the characters through the next day, and eagerly anticipated the next installment. On the "In" list for 2010-2011: the Canadian short story.
