There’s a space between works that are too long to be a short story and too short to be a novel — and in that space sits the novella. Some of the greatest novelists also wrote novellas, many of which are considered their greatest work. While the novel, as Henry James said, may be a “loose, baggy monster,” a good novella has the clarity of a single focus. The great ones are powerful and lasting, and we’ll try to discern where that power lies. Each is about 35-100 pages long. When available, we’ll see snippets of films that were made of the works we’re reading. Just about every major writer wrote a fine novella. Our choices may include works by James Joyce, Henry James, Alice Munro, Joseph Conrad, Saul Bellow, Flannery O'Connor, James Baldwin and others.
