It’s that time of year again — time for The New Yorker‘s summer fiction issue!
This post will serve as a kind of anchor post, listing the pieces and linking to our posts on each. Should folks wish to weigh in on the issue as a whole, please comment here.
Here are the four fiction pieces (again, I’ll have individual posts up very soon):
- David Gilbert: “Here’s the Story” (link to abstract)
- Ramona Ausubel: “You Can Find Love Now” (link to abstract)
- Haruki Murakami: “Yesterday” (link to the abstract)
- Karen Russell: “The Bad Graft” (link to abstract)
In addition to these fiction pieces, the following writers (and cartoonists) have provided pieces about old flames:
- Alison Bechdel: “Gradual Impact” (link to entire piece)
- Rachel Kushner: “The Adolescents” (link to the abstract)
- Joshua Ferris: “Good Legs” (link to the abstract)
- Colm Tóibín: “Stories” (link to the abstract)
- Miranda July: “TV” (link to the entire piece)
- Tobias Wolff: “Beautiful Girl” (link to the abstract)
- Chris Ware: “Possession” (link to the abstract)
I haven’t read any of these yet, so I’m not sure if we’ll put individual posts up.
