In Praise of The American Short Story

A.O. Scott’s article¬†on the online¬†New York Times, “In Praise of The American Short Story,” bemoans the current state of the American short story. Sadly, it’s nothing we haven’t heard or blogged on before; hating on MFAs, the undesirability of story collections, but we were cheered by the comment made by Gail Louise Siegel, a One Story reader in Chi-town who certainly doesn’t think the form is dead!
