My apologies for getting this up late. This week we’re on holiday and the wi-fi is hard to find — which is perfect! But I couldn’t wait much longer to get the new New Yorker story up so the conversation can start when you all want to start it.
This week, we have a new story from Andrew Sean Greer, an author I’m not familiar with, though I know I’ve heard the name before. I’m curious if any of you have read his other work and if you recommend it.
“It’s a Summer Day” appears to be a part of his forthcoming novel, Less. Many of us have issues when the magazine chooses to publish an excerpt from a novel rather than a short story, but I’m curious if this makes anyone anxious for the book.
I hope everyone enjoys it, at least! But I’m sure that won’t be the case, and I’m looking forward to the conversation below!
