Elsewhere: A Review of “Tin House” Fall 2009 on Ruelle Electrique


I review what is perhaps my most favorite issue of “Tin House” fiction to date in this November 2009 blog post on Ruelle Electrique. Somehow the planets must have aligned, as I liked every fiction offering in this two-section issue, which includes the following stories:

  • Karen Russell’s “The Seagull Army Descends on Strong Beach.”
  • Alaa Al Aswany’s “Izzat Amin Iskandar.”
  • Michael Dahlie’s “The Children of Stromsund.”
  • Michael Byers’s “Guess Who?”
  • Abigail Thomas’s “Nana’s Close Call.”
  • Ander Monson’s “Weep No More Over This Event.”
  • Nick Cave’s excerpt from “The Death of Bunny Munro.”
