Vote for New Yorker 2008 Story of the Year

The year is almost over--just a week to go. I haven't posted my comments on all of the fiction in The New Yorker Winter Fiction Issue, but I'll do that in the next few days. It's time, though, to name the Finalists for New Yorker 2008 Story of the Year:

(cue drumroll)

January 14, 2008: “Wakefield” by E.L. Doctorow (my commentary)

May 12, 2008: “A Man Like Him” by Yiyun Li (my commentary)

June 23, 2008: “The Headstrong Historian” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (my commentary)

August 11 & 18, 2008: “The Dinner Party” by Joshua Ferris (my commentary)

November 24, 2008: “Ghosts” by Edwidge Danticat (my commentary)

December 15, 2008: “The Woman of the House” by William Trevor (my commentary)


VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE IN THE RIGHT SIDEBAR
The poll will close at midnight on December 31.

Hey Cliff, your link for "The Woman of the House" sent me to an error page. (I searched on the site and found it here: http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2008/12/15/081215fi_fiction_trevor )
