Top Five Short Story Reads from July 2016

Another month of discovering several outstanding, well-crafted short stories by inspiring writers. This month, there is also an excellent audio story (performed with well-timed humor and style, as you will see) and a flash fiction piece. The featured authors come from India, South Africa, and the US: Mahasweta Devi, Lidudumalingani, Oindrila Mukherjee, William Goyen, and Reem Abu-Baker. And, there is a brief short story how-to by Joy Williams as only she can tell it. Enjoy.
