    1. Donald Ray Pollock puts to page the best short story, opening lines around. Thumb through a copy of his collection of short stories and read just the opening lines of each.An example from Pollock's short story, entitled, "Real Life":"My father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the Torch Drive-in when I was seven years old. It was the only thing he was ever any good at. This was years ago, back when the outdoor movie."
