another short story…

2. Read 100 short stories by authors of color.

And another wonderful short story it was. “The Spell and the Ever-Changing Moon” by Rukhsana Ahmad. Set in Pakistan, by a Pakistani author. A story about being a woman and the expectations put upon women. A story about hope and the loss of hope and the strange way that loss can build new hope.

Like the first two stories I used for this category, “The Spell and the Ever-Changing Moon” came from the anthology Story-Wallah: Short fiction from South Asian Writers.
