My second short story in Out of Print- here’s the link – ’11/9′
– Here’s an excerpt:
“…Slowly the conversation gravitates towards re-assessing the indecisions and mistakes of the past (something my mother relishes), this leads to the expected fight, and then a cease fire comes: a silence. Finally, after a long sigh, almost always, she adds loudly, ‘Another curse of 9/11’. She says it in a very Fox-news-anchor way. Her saying it means nothing, she isn’t political, but immediately after she says it I react, ‘Ma, its 11/9, 11/9!’”
In case you wish to read the first story that was carried in the same journal a while back- here’s the short- Naked Gods. These stories are a part of my short story collection on urban life and the individual. Hope you enjoy reading them.
