Short stories are interesting when considered as a medium of their own What I mean by this is some authors and fiction writers are better at certain types of fiction Not necessarily better at certain types of fiction when compared to other writers but better in comparison to their own works of different types For instance Nabokov is a master of the novel perhaps the best in terms of structure and one of the best in terms of raw prose but all of his short stories are terrible There is one about an angel I think it s like something I would write On the other hand Haruki Murakami excels at the two or three page story something most other authors do tritely and sardonicallyCalvino is an author who is a master of both the long and short forms Each of these stories is excellent as are his novels This is extremely rare in an author I think this collection is my second favorite work of his after If On A Winter s Night which is a masterpiece of its own
