No Time To Read

Grad School is keeping me busy of late and I have no time for pleasure reading, or all the other stay up to date reading that blurs that line so well.  Suffice it to say that the New Yorkers are stacking up.

So it was really nice this weekend to get to hear a great little piece of writing on the radio.  The winner of NPR's most recent round of three minute fiction had just been announced and they read the piece, which was really outstanding, and did a nice interview with the winner and the judge, author Michael Cunningham.

If you're not familiar with three minute fiction, NPR's judge gives a prompt, the first and last lines of the story this time, and you write one that can be read in three minutes (about 600 words).

To read Roosts, by Zach Brockhouse click here.  It's so worth the three minutes...
