Junior Takes It | Tin House – A story that makes me shudder

This little story makes me shudder.  It is unbelievable and yet…oh but it could happen! Despite the story’s simple language there is a real sense of menace. You know those articles you read in the paper about children being abused and you can’t believe adults can be so stupid, or mean or self-centered? You can meet those adults here.

Tin House produce a beautiful print magazine with a young experimental vibe. Well worth subscribing.  Their accompanying blog Open Bar  is but a taster with regular flashes of short fiction. I read a stack of them at once a few days ago, and this story by Jared Hohl just kept nagging me so I knew I needed to share it.
