“The Polish Rider” by Ben Lerner Originally published in the June 6 & 13, 2016 issue of The New Yorker. Click here to read the story in its entirety on The New Yorker website.
Of the four stories in this year’s fiction issue, this is the one I’m most looking forward to. I like Lerner’s work and think he’s usually up to something very interesting, even if I don’t care for a piece as much as I hope going in.
Looking forward to your thoughts as well!
