I read my fifth story from the “In the Meantime” anthology (stories set in Brussels), “The Commissioner and the Pig” by Nick Jacobs. I learned of this collection a few years back at Alex’s excellent blog “The Sleepless Reader.” I haven’t written a post yet as I’m recovering from the weekend’s “24in48” readathon (and yes, of course I read short stories for that!)
“o” at Behold the Stars brings us another Miguel Cervantes story “The a Little Gypsy Girl” http://beholdthestars.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/the-little-gypsy-girl-by-miguel-de.html
That’s it for now. happy reading until next week!
