This week’s story:¬† Birdsong by Jahnavi Barua

Next week’s story: The Bet by Anton Chekhov

Rated: Clean

Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss a very short story called “Birdsong” written by renowned Indian author Jahnavi Barua.¬† This discussion will give aspiring writers a lot to chew on. Our hosts marvel at Barua’s writing craft, and her talent for guiding mystery, tension, and mood. Interestingly, Gerald and Rammy were confused by the ending, which Anais absolutely loved.

Did the ending leave you confused or enchanted?
