A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Selection
That summer in New York, everyone was wearing yellow ties; the stock market was coming into a long bull run; and Corrine and Russell Calloway quit smoking.
From the writer whose Bright Lights, Big City defined a generation and the city of New York: the taut, darkly funny, alternately sultry and wistful story of the Calloway clan, who also appear in The Good Life and Brightness Falls. A selection from How It Ended, a career-spanning collection of McInerney’s short fiction, which show him to be a master of the genre, “brim[ming] with all the attendant guilt and thrills and self-defeating impulses of an extramarital tryst . . . Brilliant” (The Boston Globe).
