Tumble Home

I read Amy Hempel’s Tumble Home. The title novella didn’t do much for me, but the short stories were so crisp and weird and vivid. From page 21, one of my favorite images of the year: “the halved-apple faces of owls”. Short and sweet.

Though it’s unlikely you’ll write something nobody has ever heard of, the way you have a chance to compete is in the way you say it.
