Year of One Hundred Stories

Local writers Lisa Barrow & Mike Smith are short story buffs (as are your friends here at abcreads). This year, Lisa & Mike will be reading 100 stories each to "try to figure out what makes them tick", posting reviews of their reading on their blog, Year of One Hundred Stories.

The new year has only just begun & they have already read 2 stories each! Lisa has read "Lull" by Kelly Link & "Levitation" by Cynthia Ozick; Mike has read "Death in the Desert" by James Agee & "The Great Wall of China" by Franz Kafka. We look forward to checking in with them all year to see what insights they've gleaned!

When you visit their blog, make sure you check out the hilarious "FAQ-esque Blatherings" section, which discusses the impetus for this project & reminds readers that it's nearly impossible to discuss a short story without divulging some plot spoilers.
