One of the many fantastic stories in Carver’s Cathedral, “ A Small Good Thing” finds a young mother and father in a period of shock when their son is left unconscious and after a hit-and-run. To make matters worse, they keep getting calls in the middle of the night from a shopping mall baker telling them to pick up their son’s birthday cake — a cake that might never be eaten.

As to where to find great stories, The New Yorker stories are generally best, but require a subscription if you read too many in a month. I also like Narrative Magazine, which will ask you for an email, but their stories are free too. Tor of course has some great free stuff, and you can find most of the classics through Gutenberg. The stories on this list that are not from any of these publications, I found through simple Google searches. If I’m interested in an author, but don’t necessarily want to read a whole book, I look to see if they have any short fiction available that I can read first.
This story was written in 1997 before the publication of The Vegetarian. The two stories share many of the same themes, and it’s evident that this story served as a blueprint for the later book. In “The Fruit of My Woman” the wife is slowly turning into a tree (something that also comes up in The Vegetarian). The allusions to Daphne turning herself into a laurel tree to escape the advances of Apollo are hard to miss, but there’s no clear indication that Daphne was an actual influence on either story. Han Kang can do no wrong in my eyes.

Is there anything better than settling down for a languid afternoon of reading your favorite novel cover to cover, perhaps on a park bench or in a field of delightful flowers? No, there isn’t. But do you have time to read an entire novel in a field these days? No, you probably don’t. Whether you’re juggling work or school or some unholy combination of the two, there’s a good chance that you have nasty things like “responsibilities” and “obligations” to take care of. But even if you don’t have the time, you can still have the satisfaction of reading something start to finish if you read short fiction. I found the best short stories on the internet that you can read in just ten minutes. (Of course, if you do have the time, you should cherish them, re-read them, talk about them, think about them.)
Roxane Gay is best known for her insightful essays, but she’s also one hell of a fiction writer, too. “The Mark of Cain” tells the story of one woman with two husbands (kind of): the kind man she loves, and the hateful man she’s married to. They are, of course, identical, but she always knows who is who, and she cannot seem to have one without the other.
“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”
She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.
For many years now I’ve been posting short stories on Twitter. It’s a nightly thing: Before sitting down to write (I work on spec screenplays), I look around for a story, read it, then share it. I end up reading almost every day, irrespective of whether I am able to write something or not. (This year I am working on a screenplay that’s a noirish police procedural in the Hindi language set in satellite city Noida, near New Delhi, the capital of India.)
Doree had to take three buses—one to Kincardine, where she waited for one to London, where she waited again, for the city bus out to the facility. She started the trip on a Sunday at nine in the morning. Because of the waiting times between buses, it took her until about two in the afternoon to travel the hundred-odd miles. All that sitting, either on buses or in the depots, was not a thing she should have minded. Her daily work was not of the sitting-down kind.
