Thomas McGuane is one of our most reliably productive short story writers. Every year, we get one or, if we’re fortunate, two of his stories in The New Yorker. I really enjoy his work, I would say he’s also one of the most reliably satisfying as well. His next collection, Cloudbursts: Collected and New Stories, comes out next March and is definitely on my radar.
I notice I’ve been pretty happy with the magazine’s selections over the last several months, and I’m glad. I think 2017 is shaping up to be a good year for New Yorker fiction.
But we have a few stories left before we go there, so let’s focus on them.
As always, I look forward to your thoughts on this latest by Thomas McGuane. Feel free to leave your comments below!
