Either way, here’s my new fictional offering from the pages of David Magazine.

DAVID • Think: Little Histories.
That link there is to my latest piece for David Magazine. It’s different than the normal editorial stuff I do in that it’s a short story, this time about families and holidays. Sure, it’s set ostensibly around the High Holidays of Judaism but I’d like to think it’s a fairly universal piece about any time the family gathers to celebrate anything.

14 Brilliant Pieces of Literature You Can Read in the Time it Takes to Eat Lunch – PolicyMic.
Often attributed to Hemingway, the quintessential shortest story ever is “For sale, baby shoes. Never worn.” 6 words and you get a complete tale. The shortest horror story ever, attributed to Fredric Brown, is “The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door.” For a few years, several friends of mine (in particular Gregory Crosby and Troy Darling) wrote 13 word horror stories around the time of Halloween.
All of this is to say that a piece of literature doesn’t have to be long in order to be brilliant – as pointed out by the recent article PolicyMic. In it they list “14 Brilliant Pieces of Literature” which are all short enough to be read after you polish off a sandwich but before you have to get back to whatever it is you’re meant to be doing. More importantly, they provide links on where to find them for free.
So here ya go, lunch time reading for the next three work weeks (You can take that last Friday off, you deserve it).
Then come back and tell me what you think. Any you particularly liked? Any you didn’t?
Enquiring minds want to know.
