"Nemecia" by Kirstin Valdez Quade

This 2013 The Best American Short Stories story just might be my new favorite! (And I'm about to spend all night seeking out everything else Quade has ever written.)

It's gripping, complicated, tragic and so achingly human. If you only read one story this week, make this the one.

Nemecia can be read at Narrative, although you'll have to sign up for the trial period to read it in full. It's free and so worth it! Plus Narrative's a great pub.
