  • “The Little Tailor” by Stephanie Burgis . (Magical Realism) Burgis says of this story, “One of the first short stories of mine ever published, “The Little Tailor,” was written in memory of my great-grandfather Moshe Gerschfeld, who was a refugee from the Ukraine and the best storyteller I ever met. I still vividly remember him telling me and my little brother the story of the little tailor with fantastic, sweeping gestures and huge charisma, while my parents and great-grandmother talked politics on the other side of the room. This story (first published in 2005 and then republished in 2007) was my tribute to him.” (quote from Burgis’s Facebook page)

    That quote is so true! I checked out the list for the Great American Read – lots of classics, but lots of newer books, too, I was a little surprised but as long as people are reading!
