Forthcoming in March 2022 with Algonquin Books, and published in partnership with Selected Shorts, Small Odysseys captures the spirit of the long-time radio show & live performance series in print for the first time.
From 2010-2013, Hannah Tinti was the literary commentator on Selected Shorts, chatting with host Isaiah Sheffer about short stories each week on Public Radio. Now, in collaboration with Selected Shorts and Symphony Space, Tinti has helped bring together 35 new stories by authors featured on the program, as well as up and coming new voices.
The thirty-five stories in this volume will be honored in a full-day event at the time of publication, performed live in New York and streamed in real time all over the globe.
For longtime fans of Symphony Space’s Selected Shorts, as well as readers of anthologies like Best American or magazines like One Story, this wide-ranging collection celebrates the wildly diverse world of short fiction, and offers stories that are in turn striking, generous, provocative, joyful–and on every page extraordinary.
