Steve Almond’s Favorite Novellas

Top Ten? Not sure I have ten. Ethan Canin’s The Palace Thief has four great novellas.Ford Maddox Ford’s The Good Soldier is basically a novella. Is Heart of Darkness a novella? Bibliophilia by Michael Griffith. The whole definition of the novella is unclear to me. The Great Gatsby is 120 pages. What does that make it?

Steve Almond is the author of My Life in Heavy Metal, The Evil B.B. Chow, Candyfreak, and Which Brings Me to You, co-written with Julianna Baggott. He lives outside Boston with his wife and baby daughter Josephine, who can and will kick your ass with cuteness. Find him HERE.
