Electric Literature knocks it out of the park again with this week’s Recommended Reading story, “The Grave,” recommended by Virginia Quarterly Review. And if you missed the last one, read “Everything Is Nice,” by Jane Bowles, too. That one was recommended by Lynne Tillman. Two really great stories by fantastic women writers.
Cool to see A.N. Devers’ story “The Unraveling” at Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading. Read it!
This story, “North of,” by Marie-Helene Bertino, Jim Shepard’s selection for Recommended Reading, is a knockout. I read it a few years ago in the Mississippi Review, and it blew me away. I’m happy to see it highlighted here.
