Isn’t It Pretty To Think So

The title of this post is the title of a story of mine that will be appearing soon in the relauched PURITAN magazine, online.

Here’s a direct link to the story (pdf).

The title comes from Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, of course, the final line of the book. I started writing the story with a challenge to myself to end the story with that line. That proved too hard, but it still worked as a title.

At least, it’s pretty to think so.

The story is included in The Lizard (Chaudiere Books, 2009).

The story begins in the third person narrative voice and switches to the first person, something else that was tricky to make work.
