Reinventing Classic Short Stories by Gogol, Thurber, Borges
Thursday, July 31, 2014
Rivka Galchen discusses her new collection of short stories, American Innovations. In one story, a young woman’s furniture walks out on her. In another, the narrator feels compelled to deliver a takeout order that has incorrectly been phoned in to her. Many of the stories in this collection mirror stories by Borges, Gogol, and James Thurber.
