Selected Shorts: Falling in LoveSelected Shorts: Falling in Love by Symphony Space

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Another anthology from the Selected Shorts, this one devoted to stories about falling in love (or something like it). The stories are:

Rick Bass' "Fires", read by Ted Marcoux
Padgett Powell's "The Winnowing of Mrs. Schuping", read by Christina Pickles
Laurie Colwin's "The Lone Pilgrim", read by Hope Davis
E. Nesbit's "Melisande", read by Jane Curtin
Edna O'Brien's "Violets", read by Fionnula Flanagan
Maile Meloy's "Travis, B.", read by William Hurt

I think the last was my favorite, but I enjoyed them all. This was especially satisfying for me, because while I had heard of these writers, I don't believe I'd read any of them before, but I will be seeking out more of their work in the future.
