Richard Ford recently called short stories "the highwire act of literature." Walter Mosley has said he thinks of "novels as mountains, and short stories as far-flung islands that are the tips of mountains."
Nell Freudenberger, the winner of the 2004 PEN/Faulkner Award for Excellence in the Short Story, who was recently one of the youngest writers included in the New Granta Book of the American Short Story, will join washingtonpost.com's Off the Page on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 3 p.m. ET, to talk about short stories and her work.

Norton, based on 41 "Off the Page" interviews with writers. For more information about the book, go here.
