FREE DOWNLOAD Athletic Shorts Six Short Stories FREE READ Å Athletic Shorts Six Short Stories These six stories from acclaimed author Chris Crutcher are about athletes but are not simply spor. This short story collection serves as my introduction to Chris Crutcher as an author These stories are easy to read despite dealing with social situations and moral dilemmas self esteem reaction to death and dying prejudice and discrimination or family relationships I must admit that I experienced some discomfort reading the social slurs that Crutcher so breezily makes use of in The Telephone Man In the prologue to the story he says that he has fears in writing about racism but that basic lessons are best taught by reflecting the truthPeoplethink kids should not be exposed in print to what they are exposed in their lives I accept his argument on that point My favourite story written in 1991 and the final story in this slim volume is In the Time I Get a story about AIDS By the time I read this I had no doubt absorbed Chris style and developed an appreciation for each lesson he wished the reader to learn in each story The ending of the story found me closing the cover of the book with a tear in my eye I can see this book being used in high schools as a motivator for reluctant readers male or female I should also note that the title does not entirely reflect the content of the stories sports are certainly a part but the bigger issues are at the heart of Crutcher s stories So whether the student is a jock or not is immaterial Adults may find these stories worthwhile reading I would also recommend this book to anyone wanting to write short stories especially stories with a definite beginning middle and end I found it refreshing to read short stories with clear endings
