I just voted for The Best of the NBA’s, which gave me the opportunity to see how the voting is running. So far, Flannery O’Connor is in the lead, with 34% of the votes.

The short list was selected by writers associated with the National Book Foundation. The Chicago Tribune‘s Literary Editor, Elizabeth Taylor comments, “It’s a funny list — none of the usual suspects, like Roth, Bellow, Updike. And, very interesting — of the six books, four are story collections.” Now that Oprah’s become a believer in short stories, maybe it’s a trend.
