One Story: Optimistic People

Charles Drangle wrote this story with a title I don’t like (though he does, I just read it in his author interview which I don’t recommend you read before reading this story).

This story starts along one path, and then takes a crazy turn that had me marveling.  I was so amazed at this changeup, I stopped where I was and put this story down for several weeks.

When I picked it back up, I started from the beginning. This time I was ready for the changeup and I finished the story, marveling at the skill of this author.

    1. Only getting one story per issue is interesting. It’s either hit or miss, and there aren’t any other stories for the one story to lean on. While I haven’t liked some of the stories, the ones I have are really well written and I think I appreciate them in their one-ness in a way I wouldn’t if it were a collection of short stories.
