About this course:

A continuation of the past five summers’ reading and discussion of short stories by a wide variety of international writers. The suggested books for this course include: the second half of The Art of the Short Story: 52 Great Authors, Their Best Short Fiction, and Their Insights on Writing (the first half was the text for last summer’s class) and Bombay Stories by Saadat Hasan Manto, acclaimed one of South Asia's foremost short-story writers. Stories for the course are sad, happy, wistful, poignant, satirical, disturbing, and humorous, yet they underscore the complex circumstances and multiple vagaries of the human condition found in all cultures. Themes include loss, alienation, feminism, family dysfunction, political displacement, exile, sexual awakening, and others. The instructor provides a series of suggested study questions for each week’s readings a week before-hand; he also shares his PowerPoint presentations with students after all the week’s stories have been discussed.
