A Story a Day: Month Nine

For this month, I chose (kind of) at random stories from Granta (I ended up needing to purchase a subscription to finish reading Month Three, so thought I’d use them again), the literary quarterly from Cambridge University. 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 eight months, I have no idea what these stories are about – the goal is simply to experience new writing. Feel free to read along!
