"My" short story display case, and Janice Galloway, Tania Hershman and others...
Lee Rourke blogged yesterday about his book "Everyday" being sold in a branch of Waterstones. And he had the photo to prove it!
Yay! It's "my" short story display case.
Today Tania Hershman also blogged about it, because her fantastic collection The White Road and Other Stories is there too.
I love the fact that I get to maintain a short story section in the shop. I change it often, try to keep it fresh and enticing, but I always keep Janice Galloway's collection "Where you find it" in there. You may or may not recall me blogging about how much I LOVE this book here and here. I am delighted to say that we have now sold 50 copies. How cool is that!
I also keep Sylvia Plath's "Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams" there, because, well, it's Sylvia.
You will currently find Tania Hershman, Lee Rourke, Claire Wigfall, William Trevor, Charles Bukowski, Katherine Mansfield, Richard Yates, Miranda July, Vanessa Gebbie, Ali Smith, Alison MacLeod, Neil Smith, Tao Lin, Sara Maitland, Jhumpa Lahri and Jay McInerney in the case. We have sold out of Lorrie Moore for now.
Short stories are coooool.
