THE BEST SHORT STORIES 2021 The O. Henry Prize Winners

by | Read by Marisa Calin, Feodor Chin, Frankie Corzo, Gary Furlong, Deepti Gupta, Hillary Huber, Sullivan Jones, John Lee,

Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Consistently strong narration takes listeners into the lives of others in this story collection curated by guest editor Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Narrator Marisa Calin's Irish lilt grows mournful in Alice Jolly's tragic "From Far Around They Saw Us Burn," about an orphanage fire. Narrator Sullivan Jones takes listeners into a brother's observational thoughts and a husband's self-absorbed ruminations as a woman is dying in Jamel Brinkley's "Witness." Bahni Turpin's voice shifts with the life changes that take place as a college student becomes one of the "tall, thin girls" in Adachioma Ezeano's "Becoming the Baby Girl." Hillary Huber voices indignation and confidence in the thoughts of a Hollywood figure facing trial for sexual accusations in Emma Cline's "White Noise."
