Short story goodness

Today is International Short Story Day. (It does sometimes feel as if there's always a short story day of some description taking place.) There is a list of events and stories up here. It seems like the perfect time to draw your attention to a wonderful story which was recently announced winner of the Commonwealth Short Story Prize. It's written by Emma Martin, who I'm proud to say is a pal of mine. I have that delicious feeling of having known an amazing writer before everyone else twigged and I'm truly delighted for her. Whooooo hoooooo, Emma!  You can read her story at Granta.

I'm perennially confused with British and NZ national story days etc.

We're all really thrilled for Emma Martin in NZ!
