While I was on holiday, they announced the shortlist for this year’s Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. Here is the list:
- Young Skins, by Colin Barrett
- All the Rage, by A.L. Kennedy
- Redeployment, by Phil Klay
- Leaving the Sea, by Ben Marcus
- Bark, by Lorrie Moore
- The Isle of Youth, by Laura Van Den Berg
While I have read (and we’ve covered) some of the stories in Moore’s and Marcus’s collections, I have not read any of these. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
