I haven’t published fiction in a while, so I’m happy to point to a new short story in the beautiful online journal, Open: Journal of Arts & Letters. It’s called “A Real Comedian,” and I hope it inspires a smile or two. Let me add that the editors of O:JA&L do a great job of curating the artwork displayed with every text on the site, which makes it a pleasure to read. Enjoy!
