The Atlantic recently published an article entitled "The Return of the Novella, the Original #Longread", in which Joe Fassler examines the role of the novella in the publishing industry ("...the 50,000-Word Abyss"), tipping a large hat to Melville House Publishing, the first publisher to publish a novella series (The Art of the Novella). Smitten by Fassler's final paragraph--his own definition of the novella--we thought we'd curate a reading list of novellas on our site, which you can find here.
