The Collected Stories of Lorrie Moore


Lorrie Moore’s best-known story is probably ‘People Like That Are the Only People Here’, which won the O Henry Award in 1998 and was included in the annual Best American Short Stories collection. Portraying parents agonising in hospital while their young son is treated for a tumour, it was recently picked again by Richard Ford as Moore’s contribution to his New Granta Book of the American Short Story.
