On "How I Started Going To Meetings" by Matt Bell (942 words) ****

Okay, so you're on a bus or something, and you happen to spot a letter--just sitting there. Or maybe you've checked out a library book, and there's a letter inside. Or whatever. It's one of those "Found" things that Found magazine does such interesting stuff with. This is a story written like one of those letters. I feel somewhat dirty reading it, poking into the intimate details of these people's lives. I don't know the full story, but I know enough to want to know more. That's how this story reads to me, and I love it. It's fiction. It's meant to be read. I don't have to feel guilty. And neither do you. Read it here at Necessary Fiction.
