The Collector of Treasures by Bessie Head
This short collection by the South African mixed race writer Bessie Head contains stories about the significance of small things and the power of tenderness.
For students and teachers of fiction:
SHORT FICTION:Classic and Contemporary, 6th edition, edited by Charles Bohner and Lyman Grant
This anthology is one I have used frequently with my classes. The selections include writers like Sherman Alexie, James Baldwin, and Isabelle Allende, as well classics by Chekov, Kafka, O'Connor, Joyce, and Porter.
Siobhan Dowd is posthumously awarded the Carnegie Medal for her new book Bog Child
The late Siobhan Dowd was a friend of mine. We grew up together in South London and both attended La Retraite High School. When Siobhan lived in New York and worked for PEN, we would exchange our writing.
Siobhan's novels for young readers are stunningly beautiful. The Carnegie has been awarded previously to Philip Pullman, C.S. Lewis, and other major writers.
