Yay for another great discovery! And how awesome that you have access to the New Yorker archives with your subscription.

Such tricky themes in only five pages. (This makes me realise that I am such an undisciplined editor of my own writing!) I'm really looking forward to getting my teeth into these short stories soon.


Those online archives just scream to be read on an ipad. If only I had a little extra cash, but then there is always paying on the installment plan. I keep mulling it over--do you use your ipad lots? And I've enjoyed each new author I've read from this collection--quite a treat each weekend to read yet another.


It is a heavy theme and maybe all the better really that it is a shorter story than longer. It was very effectively done. And you are in for a treat if you pick this collection up. I've yet to encounter a dud of a story!


Yes, it sounds like a smart move to keep this story short sharp and brutal. Like you, I am a huge fan of any author connected with the New Yorker. The thought of having access to the archives makes me feel a little dizzy - it would take several years to work through a fraction of what they contain, but what a prospect!


I'm not using my iPad a whole bunch. Even though I have lots of book related stuff on it I feel like it is a computer and it interferes with my "real" reading. I like it though, I just have to figure out what sort of role it is going to play.


I was so excited when I found out I could go online and look through their archives and often do, but the problem is knowing where to even start! I think it's worth the price of the subscription to be able to read whatever I want whenever--even if it has to be online. And I am not sure I could have handled a longer story when it deals with such blatant racism. Sometimes less really is more.
