Brilliant story at BTAP this week

Terry Farley Moran contributes For Keepsies at this week's Beat to a Pulp.  This one will knock you down.  The writing is perfect.  It has all the qualities "literary fiction" strives for but never achieves the way good "genre" fiction does.  The ultimate effect was that of being a kid, sitting on the lap of a relative who knows how to tell a good story and realizing nothing is going to protect you from the Big Bad World.

  1. Ms. Moran says so much with a minimal amount of words. Just the way I like it.

    AC, You're spot on about the "literary fiction" versus "genre" fiction.

  3. Terrie, no problem. I was really impressed. By the way, I fixed the name in the post. Sorry about the previous typo.
