Standard

I have a new review out on Ruelle Electrique of The New Yorker’s June 2010 fiction. Stories I cover include:

  • Jeffrey Eugenides’s “Extreme Solitude”
  • Joshua Ferris’s “The Pilot”
  • Jonathan Safran Foer’s “Here We Aren’t, So Quickly”
  • Phillip Meyer’s “What You Do Out Here, When You’re Alone”
  • Rivka Galchen’s “The Entire Northern Side Was Covered With Fire”
  • Gary Shteyngart’s “Lenny Hearts Eunice”
  • ZZ Packer’s “Dayward”
  • Salvatore Scibona’s “The Kid”
  • C. E. Morgan’s “Twins”
  • Nicole Krauss’s “The Young Painters”

Above in the Brady Bunch grid are the “20 Under 40” writers selected for the summer fiction issue. Did your favorites make the cut?
