Some of my favorite short books:
Beasts by Joyce Carol Oates has 138 pages, We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson is the chunkiest at 213, and The Suicide Shop by Jean Teule weighs in at 169. And they are all amazing and clever and atmospheric and I would put them up against any longer novel.
So tell me, what are your favorite short books? What should I add to my wishlist?
