Fiction: "Grief Mongers" by Sefi Atta
6/18/2009 10:22:41 AM
One of the particular things I like about this piece is it's setting away from what I'm normally constrained to on a daily basis. I think whenever we read a piece of fiction from a different time or place, one of the goals is to SHOW that time and place as it is, allowing us to digest the setting as something important, something to learn from even.
The zine it was published in is Per Contra, a very simply set-up zine that boasts an easy-to-navigate design and big letters for those of us who stare too often at small text on our computers. Worth checking out.
Here's a link to the zine:
