Since I began commenting each week on the fiction in the New Yorker, at year's end I have come up with a "Story of the Year." Once again, I will let readers vote from a list of finalists, which I will determine from my own preferences and the nominations of readers.
To see a discussion of last year's winner (Claire Keegan's "Foster"), go HERE.
All you have to do to nominate is to leave a comment here on Perpetual Folly with the name of your choice. I will then compile a list of the top stories and create a poll. All very simple.
Forgot about the stories? No problem. Review them all by browsing through the posts from the whole year: New Yorker 2011.
