New Yorker – 20 Under 40 – Summer Fiction

Recently, the Atlantic had a fiction issue, and now the New Yorker has their fiction issue, which they are branding “20 Under 40.”  Some of the stories have full text available, while others just give a summary.  While all of the authors mentioned in the issue may not have work appearing in that issue, it will be forthcoming throughout the summer.  Over the next weeks, I’ll be reviewing the stories and hopefully finding some gems.
