Is a book still a graphic “novel” when it’s a collection of stories? Where do “connected stories” fall on the spectrum between short story collection and novel? And what about that strange beast, the elusive, seldom seen “novella”? Three authors with three very different books will discuss the joys and challenges of the short story collection: Arthur Bradford, whose new collection Turtleface and Beyond features stories all from the perspective of one narrator; David Gates, whose new book A Hand Reached Down to Guide Me includes a novella; and Adrian Tomine, whose new story collection Killing and Dying features a collection of graphic narrative vignettes. Moderated by Tony Perez (editor, Tin House Books).
