"The Bog Girl" by Karen Russell Originally published in the June 20, 2016 issue of The New Yorker.
I loved Karen Russell’s debut story collection, and I’ve looked forward to every thing she’s published since. Sadly, I’ve always been disappointed. I just haven’t felt the magic. In fact, I’ve really disliked most of her work since.
Still, I can’t help but look forward to this new story. I hope that either it has the old strength or that I’m better equipped to appreciate it.
I look forward to your comments below!
