Today's Menu


Reading: Sherman Alexi’s story “Salt.”
Drinking: Water
Thinking: It’s absolutely brilliant. It defies all the standard (and predictable) formulas of the short story and yet procures what every great one wants: the reader’s engagement, surprise, self-reflection, and sorrow. Every astounding book leaves me in love with its author. Damn—I am blushing. And feeling sad. And capacious.
