The polls have closed and the votes have been counted. We have a tie! Sharing the New Yorker Story of the Year honor for 2009 are two excellent stories, "A Tiny Feast" by Chris Adrian and "Victory Lap" by George Saunders. Another fine story, "Idols," by Tim Gautreaux, came just one vote shy of making it a three-way tie.
Congratulations to Chris Adrian and George Saunders!
And thanks to all who voted!
