Here at the Tualatin Public Library, we love short stories. We’ve curated a great list of short stories that will certainly add color to your world this summer. These collections offer a bit of everything: something deeply personal, something hilariously funny, or maybe just head-scratchingly unique. We hope you find a cool, comfortable spot to curl up and enjoy some short stories!
Don't miss First Person Singular, a riveting collection of short stories that all touch beautifully on love and loss, childhood and death ... all with a signature Haruki Murakami twist.
In The Office of Historical Corrections, Danielle Evans zooms in on particular moments and relationships in her characters' lives in a way that allows them to speak to larger issues of race, culture and history.
Alaya Dawn Johnson delineates the lives of those trodden underfoot by the powerful and how they rise up. Meet the humans who serve a coterie of vampires in Hawai’i or explore the taxonomy of anger with Black Union soldiers and the woman who travels with them during the American Civil War in Reconstruction.
Tenth of December, George Saunders’ prize-winning collection of hilariously cynical short stories, takes a satirical look at life’s dark side.
