This week Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by Ambrose Bierce. Gerald loved the prose, but not the plot. In the reverse, Anais loved the plot the anticipates an entire genre, but prefers different prose. Rammy struggled to find meaning in the story, while Anais found plenty to chew on, albeit a rather depressing chew.
