The Expendables: Stories À Winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award Antonya Nelson's debut collection of stories displays the off beat perceptions the humor and the sensibility that have won the author not only critical acclaim but a host of devoted readers Most of the stories in The Expendables are about marriage marriage in process about to be about not to be any possibl This book came out in 1989 my second year of college I was 19 and beginning to embrace what became a failed hope that I would pursue the writer's life specifically in fiction and my first creative writing instruction at the college level was from Antonya Nelson at New Mexico State University It was from her that I learned uite a bit including the somewhat earth shattering news that there was such a thing as literary fiction Literary fiction to my not uite adult mind was basically non genre fiction Later I'd learn about magical realism and even later I learned about post modernism but one of the most difficult things for me to get around was channeling my imagination into a literary non genre sphere I don't know that I ever really mastered thatThe important message though something I still embrace and about which I learn every time I explore the Genre capital G which has to do with a different level of the writing sphere capital G for me encompasses Fiction Poetry Non Fiction Playwritingand within that you have Short Stories verses Novels for example is that short stories and novels are uite differentI remember a conversation we had about how freuently if a novel can do the same thing as a short story why would someone write a novel instead? I suspect that it has to do with what sells and that's even true now than it was twenty five years ago Do people outside of college level creative writing programs buy short story collections any other than those written by Stephen King?I hope soNelson is a master of the short story The Expendables was her first collection for which she won the Flannery O'Connor award for short fiction if you've read the other reviews you already know this and whose book jacket bears a blurb from none other than Raymond CarverThere are a few occasions where the writer's hand is perhaps too visible The most obvious for me is in view spoilerHelen in Hollywood hide spoiler TEXT ☆ Ò Antonya Nelson
