Ravi Mangla's Visiting Writers
We are excited to publish Ravi Mangla’s collection of small stories, Visiting Writers. Each story describes an encounter with someone like Thomas Pynchon, Richard Yates, Harper Lee, or etc., with a sort of surreality, and a sense of humor and tenderness. We’ve tended to go for more aggressive stories here in the past, especially in our online offerings, which are generally geared toward the Internet in (we think) fairly obvious ways. This one is, for lack of a better word, a little more quiet, a little more subtle—and yet, in its own way, still very strange. We hope that you’ll like it as much as we do. Go have a look.
