A personal anthology

Jonathan Gibbs, author of the novel Randall, a wonderful re-imagining of the world of the Young British Artists in the 1990s, has set up a weekly newsletter which generously offers an opportunity to any of us to draw up a personal anthology of 12 short stories. I jumped straight in and my personal anthology was sent out by Jonathan last week.

I relished the chance to revisit stories which have stuck in my mind since I first read them, some many years ago, others more recently. My chosen stories are:

  • At Sea, Guy de Maupassant
  • Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Rudyard Kipling
  • The Luncheon, W. Somerset Maugham
  • A Child”s Christmas in Wales, Dylan Thomas
  • Curl up and Dye, Fran Landsman
  • Ernesto, Juana Adcock
  • Wires, Jon McGregor
  • The Semplica Girl Diaries, George Saunders
  • Tiger Palace, Kirsty Logan
  • Sound Waves, Lane Ashfeldt
  • The Cruellne, James Clammer
  • Two, Joanna Walsh
