“What We Talk About When We Begin to Drink Vodka, Smoke Weed, and Hide in Closets” by Sarah Lum at Literary8

If you’ve read any of Best American Short Stories (BASS) 2012, you’ll most likely enjoy the blog at Literary 8, which features a new review of a BASS story every day for the next month. Some of the reviews are both funny and insightful.

Today’s review by Sarah Lum, “What We Talk About When We Begin to Drink Vodka, Smoke Weed, and Hide in Closets” is of Nathan Englander’s short story “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank” which is based, in part, on Carver’s “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.”

So… there’s a lot of talking, about a lot of things. Check out the blog for a variety of different voices as 8 readers review 4 BASS stories each. Good stuff.
