My pick for the Short Stories genre was ‘All That Man Is’ By David Szalay.
All of the stories are set in various countries in Europe which made it quite a bit more interesting than I was anticipating.
The short stories made for good holiday reading as I could pick it up and read a story at a time without loosing the thread of the story that I perhaps would have lost reading a standard fiction. I was also surprised at how well you got to know the main characters of each story in such a short time. The only downside was that with a few of the stories I would’ve liked to know more about what happened next instead of being left to guess what happened.
