Next week’s story is Years End by Jhumpa Lahiri
Kudzu is a story about the negative sides of motherhood. It prompted an interesting discussion about symbolism and the current literary voice. This episode is an inverse of last weeks discussion with Maya enjoying the story and Anais, Gerald and Rammy exposing weaknesses in the story. Enjoy!
Don’t forget to rate the story! For the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate Kudzu? Tell us in the comments below or via voicemail, and we will give the final tally on the next episode.
