Sobre o livro
"You dont often get collections, or even anthologies where every story knocks you out, but Ive been bewildered in the best way over each one [inThe Story Prize] so far." Lillian Li, author ofNumber One Chinese Restaurant
This anthology of short stories marks the fifteenth anniversary of The Story Prize and includes one story from each of the annual winning collections, beginning with Edwidge DanticatsThe Dew Breaker and concluding with Elizabeth StroutsAnything Is Possible.The founder of The Story Prize, Julie Lindsey, and its director, Larry Dark, created this award to address the lack of one specifically for collections of stories. Together they choose three finalists from the previous years publications, which are sent to three judgesan author, a bookseller or librarian, and a critic or editorwho, independently of one another, relay their choices.
The prize is then presented at an annual celebration in New York, where the finalists read from their books and then discuss their work with Dark. Excerpts from these interviewsor, in a few cases, the judges citationsintroduce each story in the book. The authors chose the stories included to read at the annual Story Prize event.
