Well-written short stories are the gems of literature . . .
small powerhouses of compelling characters,
moral imperatives, and psychological richness.
They draw the reader right in and deliver a jolt, quietly
or dramatically, at their conclusions. Classics and
contemporary stories will be discussed. The proximity
of despair and joy, the vulnerability and power of
women, the search for inner freedom in men, and
the mystery and beauty of ordinary lives will all be
explored in our story analyses. This course, following
in the tradition of the instructor’s previous Gems
of Literature classes, features 16 stories chosen by
the instructor. Check www.RCLLA.org for
