The view from Canada on classic short stories

It’s a parade of Chekhov, Carver, Joyce, and, of course, Alice Munro over at The Danforth Review. The literary website has asked 27 Canadian writers to craft a “Short Story 101” syllabus: “TDR asked 27 writers what curriculum they would bring to class, if they were asked to teach an introductory level course on ‘the short story.'” Among the respondents are Greg Hollingshead, Lynn Coady, Carrie Snyder, and Q&Q‘s own review editor James Grainger and frequent contributor Nathan Whitlock.
