LoveReading Expert Review of The Best British Short Stories 2011

In true Ronseal fashion this book really ‘does what it says' on the cover.

In it you’ll find the best short stories published by British writers, whether based in the UK or elsewhere and you won’t be disappointed.

Perfect for those times when you don’t have the time or inclination for a full novel but rather like a ‘espresso’ you need a literary pick me up.

The Best British Short Stories 2011 Synopsis

Best British Short Stories invites you to judge a book by its cover - or more accurately, by its title. This new series aims to reprint the best short stories published in the previous calendar year by British writers, whether based in the UK or elsewhere. The editor's brief is wide ranging, covering anthologies, collections, magazines, newspapers and web sites, looking for the best of the bunch to reprint all in one volume. Neither genre nor Granta shall be overlooked in the search for the very best new short fiction. The first book of the series includes stories published in 2010 by the following authors: David Rose, Hilary Mantel, Lee Rourke, Leone Ross, Claire Massey, Christopher Burns, Adam Marek, SJ Butler, Heather Leach, Alan Beard, Kirsty Logan, Philip Langeskov, Bernie McGill, John Burnside, Robert Edric, Michele Roberts, Dai Vaughan, Alison Moore and Salley Vickers.
