It has been said that, in short fiction, only trouble is interesting,Image and that its nature tends toward sadness and frustration. But is there more to the story?  Author David Ebenbach discusses his journey as a fiction writer, from a consistent focus on alienation and loss to something richer, more balanced, and more representative of the full range of human experience—a range that, it turns out, the short story form is ready and eager to explore.
