On "Good Grief" by Sue Walker (1186 words) ***

LinkWalker's story captures a southern voice--but also a unique voice. The narrator is dead--or so the newspapers say. I could see a number of good stories coming out of this--great ironic pieces on bureaucracy. Instead, Walker goes for something slightly different, letting the woman talk about the meaning of her life and about the value or lack thereof of the countless husbands she's had. Read the story here at the Dead Mule School of Southern Literature.
