"Mother's Day, 2013" by Gabriel Heller

Lately, the idea of plot and its relevance to today's short fiction has been something my friends and I have been debating.

Personally, I'm a big fan of plot--when it's supported by all the other imperative pieces. For a rich reading experience, I'm especially fond of beautiful prose, strong and interesting characters, and that little bit extra, that beneath-the-surface hum or ding that you get from, say, an Amy Hempel story.

Anyway, "Mother's Day, 2013" by Gabriel Heller (AGNI) seems like a good place to open this conversation on plot. Have a read and let me know what you think about it all.
