Deal Me In – Week 11 Wrap Up

20140316-155641.jpg

We had a full house at DMI2014 this week. If you throw out (er, I guess I mean “discard”) my seven of clubs, we’re “jacks full” of eights. Although, we might not have left the table in one piece if this were a real poker game – two of our jacks were the jack of clubs. Try explaining THAT while raking in your winnings. 🙂

Anyway, on to the stories. Below are links to all the posts I saw as of the time of this writing. If there’s one I missed, feel free to link in the comments to this post. As always, I encourage everyone to visit and read the posts of your fellow participants, perhaps leaving a comment if you wish…

James read two “stories”, Grace Paley’s “An Interest in Life” and George Orwell’s essay, “England, Your England.” George and Grace? That has a familiar ring to it…http://jamesreadsbooks.com/2014/03/10/deal-me-in-short-story-challenge-george-orwell-vs-grace-paley/

Dale read another classic, “The Celestial Railroad” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. http://mirrorwithclouds.wordpress.com/2014/03/13/nathaniel-hawthorne-the-celestial-railroad/

Katherine read “The Eight of December” by James Smed, another story from her David Copperfield collection. Appropriately, she also links to a video of another great, “magic” card trick. http://katenread.wordpress.com/2014/03/15/deal-me-in-week-11-the-eighth-of-december/

Jay (that’s me) read another Russian short story (I’m loving these!), “Lazarus” by Leonid Andreyev. https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/lazarus-by-leonid-andreyev/

Candiss’s eight of spades led her to the story “Brownies” by ZZ Packer http://readthegamut.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/deal-me-in-challenge-story-11-brownies-by-zz-packer/

And… late breaking from Hanne at Reading on Cloud 9 just after I posted this… is Andre Dubus’s “A Father’s Story” http://readingoncloud9.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/week10/
