Decades after Salinger’s incredible Franny and Zooey proved linked tales go beyond the confines of a short story and somewhere different than a novel, collections of connected stories are everywhere. We’ll read, discuss, and write linked short stories, starting with Rebecca Curtis’s “Toast” (Harpers, February 2014) and “The Christmas Miracle” (New Yorker, December 2013), then moving on to two stories from Joan Silber’s recent story collection, Fools. Exercises and prompts will get students thinking and writing in linked stories. Students will leave class with at least one pair of linked tales.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
Corinne Manning's debut story collection WE HAD NO RULES has received starred reviews from Booklist and Publisher's Weekly the latter noting it "exquisitely examines queer relationships with equal parts humor, heartache, and titillation." Corinne has taught for Hugo House since 2011.
