He listens — and she lives. On the wild and lonely Yorkshire moors, a tragic story unfolds as Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff fall in love. But it is a dangerous love, filled with unhappiness and suffering. The landscape itself and the states of sour feeling are described with sharpness and precision. When the sister announces that she would like a piano that is advertised for sale locally, one of the brothers buys it for her. The failure to get the piano into the house has an extraordinary power and pathos.
Its purchase has stood for all hope, and now there is no hope. The hard-won sense of despair and darkness in the final pages of this small masterpiece is memorable and chilling. Only afterwards did I discover that this was in fact a piece of densely textured reportage, but it taught me so much about how to write a short story that I will always see it as one.
A young man, Werner Hoeflich, trapped by a fire, escapes by leaping from the window of his New York apartment, across the intervening gap and in through the window of the adjacent building. It has the richness of a novel, the raw and dirty grip of life and was, for me, a revelation. Fine language and a deftly conjured mood are all well and good, but fiction — of whatever length — should thrill.
Mark Haddon. Simply expressed and made to linger long in the mind, it was my first experience of the prizewinning Austrian writer and her dark, precise prose styling, and the start of an ongoing pursuit on my part to read more of her work. Eley Williams. The disease had sharpened my senses — not destroyed — not dulled them. Passion there was none.
I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture — a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Joyce Carol Oates. Many readers might come to this from the short film, made rather confusingly in French.
Peyton Farquhar is being hanged by Union soldiers on a small bridge in Alabama. To say more might ruin the experience of reading it.
When I happened on the story a few years ago, I thought I might be one of only a few intrepid readers. Of course, it is considered to be one of the best stories in American literature. Sebastian Barry. I can, however, name 20 to 30 stories that I return to often. A woman travels alone to recover from a love that has ended too abruptly, but the wish that solitude could exorcise loneliness is as faulty as the wish that love could exorcise disappointment brought by love.
The story to me is like an eye drop for the mind. Yiyun Li. The thing that is most striking about this story, aside from its restrained, grave beauty, is that it should manage to be so moving. On one level it is a dryly detailed and topographically exact portrait of a small town in the American midwest, but on another it is a devastating threnody for lost love.
Gass was one of the great prose stylists, and the writing here is typically smooth and pellucid, conjuring its effects by stealth and unflagging control. Simply, and by simple means, a masterpiece. John Banville. Decades unfold inside the beat of a sentence; a single moment might linger unspoken for many pages.

Time seems to concertina, expanding and contracting to open out pockets of aromatic description. The story deals in oxymorons — bitter desire, weak power — and jolts to a conclusion that is harsh, cool, indelible. Kevin Barry. Key to a great short story is the tension and torsion created within each sentence. The main character, a nurse, has been taken to the overseas villa of her rich lover. The story is lit with sexual chemistry, but travels a horribly misaligned path.
Its true test lies in finding an exit from the female dream. Sarah Hall. This is a strange, dark little story. Anderson evokes the Ohio town of Winesburg by focusing on the hands of its inhabitants. Guy Gunaratne. Sedaris is in the fifth grade when heavy snow closes the schools. The little Sedarises go off sledding and return to find the door locked against them. They peer through the window to see their mother watching TV and glugging wine.
She closes the drapes on them. A story — more memoir than fiction — that starts with the recognition that the very sight of you drives your mother to drink is attractive to me. He is a genius. Nina Stibbe. Calvino imagines it so close it risks dipping its scales in the sea. Fishermen gather lunar milk as the protagonist writhes in unrequited love.
It is a great example of magic realism — full of texture and motion and mischief and longing. A southern white deputy sheriff tries and fails to have sex with his wife. As she goes to sleep he talks about the vicious beating he gave a black protestor earlier that day, and returns to a deeper and even darker memory from his childhood: the ritual killing of a black man.
After the killing, there was a picnic. But with these elements he explored some of the most thrilling ideas in fiction.
