Short Stories

For the last couple of weeks Michelle has been immersed in short stories.  This is good because I never could come up with a list of stories I thought she should read! (Remember when I blogged about that months ago?) 

For ENC1102 she has read these:

* Hemingway "Cat in the Rain"

*  Checkhov "Misery"

*  Mansfield "Miss Brill"

* Bambara "The Lesson"

* Tallent "No One’s a Mystery"

* O’Connor "Revelation"

* Carver "Cathedral"

* O’Brien "The Things They Carried"

* Erdrich "The Red Convertible"

She hasn’t liked them all but they’ve been interesting enough that she hasn’t done too much complaining.  She wrote an essay about "No One’s a Mystery" and is editing it and expanding it for her research project – which I believe is the last piece of writing for her class. 

If you’re still looking for short stories for your teen, check out these Classic Shorts.  There are some good ones.

  1. Wow! Great resource! Thanks for sharing.

  2. For me its not a matter of how to keep my teenage daughter reading – its how to afford all the books. she loves to read and loves to buy books – the library doesn’t seem to have the books she wants and she takes a book with her anywhere she goes so i am hesitant with library books for fear they may accidentally become damaged or misplaced, any ideas on where to find good teenage books for CHEAP?

    I keep my teens busy by giving them jobs. My daughter works with me at a preschool on Tuesdays and I pay her $5. My son does chores around the house and he gets the same. I take them out to eat once or twice a week and they go bowling and to movies. We have fun and also do our jobs.
