Nu är det noveller som gäller

BEF”When [Lydia] Davis triumph was followed by a Nobel Prize for the Canadian short-story writer Alice Munro, people started to mutter that something significant was afoot. While two successive prizes could be coincidence, the renaissance of the short story was confirmed when the American George Saunders won the inaugural Folio Prize at the start of the year for Tenth of December. Something of a writer’s writer – beloved of Zadie Smith and Jonathan Franzen – Saunders was catapulted into public view and on to the bestseller lists. And with him – blushing as it cast off its ‘Who? Little old me?’ mantle – went short-form fiction.”

Citerat ur ”The irresistible rise of the short story” av Sam Baker i The Telegraph, 18 maj 2014. Baker argumenterar övertygande för att novellen ligger i tiden.
