5 new short story collections to read for National Short Story Month

These short stories pack a big punch.

Sabrina & Corina by Kali Fajardo-Anstine

Kali Fajardo-Anstine’s debut short story collect earned raves from a number of writers, including award-winning authors Julia Alvarez and Sandra Cisneros: “Here are stories that blaze like wildfires, with characters who made me laugh and broke my heart,” says Cisneros. “Sabrina & Corina isn’t just good, it’s masterful storytelling,” praises Alvarez.

“Fajardo-Anstine takes aim at our country’s social injustices and ills without succumbing to pessimism. The result is a nearly perfect collection of stories that is emotionally wrenching but never without glimmers of resistance and hope,” writes Kirkus in a starred review.
