A Story a Day: Month Three

For this month, I chose (kind of) at random stories from Granta, the literary quarterly from Cambridge University, something I’d stumbled upon in my search for stories. I say ‘kind of’ because I scrolled through their list and chose any story that I came across – but skipped over the excerpts because I wanted stand-alone stories. As with the previous two months, I have no idea what these stories are about – the goal is simply to experience new writing. Feel free to read along!
