Electric Literature is a quarterly anthology of short fiction. The editors select stories with a strong voice that capture readers and listeners and lead them somewhere exciting, unexpected, and meaningful.

In the Autumn 2009 anthology, Colson Whitehead charts the rise to fame of a truth-telling comedian. Stephen O'Connor transports us to a cabin in the woods, where a young woman attempting to finish her dissertation in solitude becomes increasingly convinced she's not alone. Pasha Malla follows a young writer as he explores how tragedy influences art - and how life falls short of it. Marisa Silver tells the tale of three sisters who perceive the truth about their parents through the eyes of some unexpected visitors. And Lydia Davis' solitary narrator acutely details the behavior of three cows who live in a pasture just across the road.

    " Four of these stars are for Pasha Malla. The other is for EL generally. The three girls story was good too, though, but maybe not worth a thousand bucks. Still not interested in Lydia Davis outside of her role as one of Brandon Scott Gorrell's characters that one time (Nervous Assface / bearparade). "

    " Not as good as no. 1, but still pretty great. Stephen O'Connor's "Love" was a stand out -- the first few pages were deceptively simple, but by the end, I was hooked and amazed. "

    " The Pasha Malla and Marisa Silver were my favorites I think. Colson Whitehead's piece reminds me of Louis CK, but also the writer himself. Didn't care much for Three Cows but I appreciated the effort, I think. "

    " I thought this issue was a bit more uneven than the first. I was surprised that the stories from the authors whose names I knew (Colson Whitehead, Lydia Davis) were actually in my opinion the weakest. Strong, emotionally piercing writing from Pasha Malla, Stephen O'Connor, and Marisa Silver, though. "
