O. Henry Awards 1999 O. Henry Awards 1999

This month, the O. Henry Awards looks back on its 80-year history in a Bold Type special feature. Also included are winning stories by Peter Baida and Michael Cunningham, and an up-to-date list of literary magazines looking to publish original fiction.
Motherless Brooklyn Jonathan Lethem

Jonathan Lethem returns with his fifth novel, Motherless Brooklyn, and we think it's his best yet. Lionel Essrog, a.k.a. The Human Freakshow, is a private eye on the trail of the killer who knifed his boss. He's smart, he's angry, and he's got Tourette's syndrome.
My Father Dancing Bliss Broyard

From a fresh new voice in fiction comes a collection of short stories that are at times heartwarming, at times raw, and always poignant. Hear Bliss Broyard read from My Father, Dancing, and read an excerpt from the book and a personal essay.
The Great Shame Thomas Keneally

Thomas Keneally's new book is a departure for the Booker Prize-winning novelist. The Great Shame is an epic history of the Irish diaspora, told with the skill and flair of a great novelist. In this issue of Bold Type, Keneally answers a few questions about himself and his career, plus, in the Preface to The Great Shame, he explains how readers' reactions to the story he told in Schindler's List inspired him to write The Great Shame.
