The Best American Short Stories edited by Salman Rushdie

I’m eating crumpets smothered in Lurpak and reading from one of my Christmas gifts: The Best American Short Stories (2008), edited by Salman Rushdie.

In the past, short stories have not always been my favourite thing. I like to be in it for the long haul. But I’ve found they make exceedingly good bed fellows lately.

    I love short stories because they allow you to accomplish having read something. It’s so rare for me to finish a novel anymore. However, I have difficulty remembering stories after I finish them. At least when I read a novel it’s ingrained in my memory.

    I am surprised to read that short stories aren’t your favorite. You prefer novels, I guess…where the characters get up and walk around in your head…maybe forever. I like that to, but anymore I prefer the short. I wonder, just now, why…adult on-set ADHD, says the clinician I keep chained in the basement…
