June 6 & 13, 2016Not being the biggest Jonathan Safran Foer fan, I’m not looking forward to this particular story in this year’s Fiction Issue (nor was I looking forward to the story he had in last year’s fiction issue — sheesh). It’s not even as short as his have been in year’s past. Nevertheless, I’m committed to reading all four stories in the magazine, so!

I look forward to your thoughts, as always!
