Short story goodness

Today is International Short Story Day. (It does sometimes feel as if there’s always a short story day of some description taking place.) There is a list of events and stories up here. It seems like the perfect time to draw your attention to a wonderful story which was recently announced winner of the Commonwealth Short Story Prize. It’s written by Emma Martin, who I’m proud to say is a pal of mine. I have that delicious feeling of having known an amazing writer before everyone else twigged and I’m truly delighted for her. Whooooo hoooooo, Emma!  You can read her story at Granta.
