"The King's Teacup at Rest"
by Michael Andreasen
Originally published in the July 11 & 18, 2016 issue of The New Yorker.

07_11_16-400This is Michael Andreasen’s first story in the magazine, and from my meager research it is one of his first stories published anywhere. And here we get it in a double issue — I hope they’ve found a story and author for the heightened expectations.

I’ll post my thoughts below once I’ve read the story, but please feel free to comment in the meantime.
