Ode to the Short Story

In my opinion, short stories are highly underrated. Though I always have a book on my nightstand, sometimes (like when I’ve just finished a heavier book like The Goldfinch or All The Light You Cannot See) I’m just not in the mood to tackle a full length novel. I need something that requires less commitment. Enter the short story. I’ve recently come across a few really great collections of short stories that don’t compromise on plot or character development. Check them out and see if you agree!
