The Short Story Is Alive and Well and Living at Ecco: TUNNELING TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH and DEAR HUSBAND,

The Ecco imprint at HarperCollins Publishers has scored a double-header in the April 5, 2009 issue of the New York Times Book Review. Two new collections of short stories are reviewed:  Tunneling to the Center of the Earth by Kevin Wilson and Dear Husband, by Joyce Carol Oates. Wilson's short stories in Tunneling to the Center of the Earth are Southern gothic at its best laced with humor and pathos, while Oates's short stories in Dear Husband, reinterpret the meaning of family in unexpected, often startling ways.
