In Praise Of Short Stories

 K.J. Orr in conversation with A.L. Kennedy, David Constantine and Helen Simpson

An embarrassment of riches for short story lovers! Three award-winning writers will be reading from their work and discussing the short story form at the inaugural Daunt Books Festival. A.L. Kennedy is the author of six collections of short stories: her latest, ALL THE RAGE, will be out in March. David Constantine is the winner of both the 2010 BBC National Short Story Award and the 2013 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and has published four collections of short stories. Helen Simpson is the author of five collections of short stories, and in 2012 her Selected Stories were published by Vintage Classics.
