Iridescent Adolescent: Diverse Literary Short Stories by the EMC

Iridescent Adolescent: Diverse Literary Short Stories by the EMC


A brilliant new anthology featuring new and established voices: the perfect stepping stone to the demands of GCSE study.


EMC's new anthology brings together the principles behind both  Literary Shorts and Diverse Shorts, to offer a wide and exciting range of short stories that challenge and engage readers.  The stories which made it into Iridescent Adolescent exemplify the best of contemporary short stories, reflecting not only diverse voices but diverse approaches to the form.  All offer plenty for students to get their teeth into thematically and all provide opportunities for literary discussion - both creative and critical.


Stories included in the anthology are by: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, David Almond, Margaret Atwood, Barbara Bleiman, Rebecca Boroson, Sita Brahmachari, Anita Desai, Neil Gaiman, Jessie Greengrass, Caroline Hadilaksono, Barbara Jenkins, Earl Lovelace, Alison MacLeod, Shirley Jackson, Milly Jafta, Jamil Jan Kochai, Phoebe Roy, George Saunders, Kamila Shamsie, Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi
