bullet in the brain

Re-read a much-heralded short story by Tobias Wolff, Bullet In the Brain, today. My book group for its next selection is having each member choose a short story and as a group we’ll read them all. I used Bullet in the Brain in a summer writing program with high-school age students years ago and thought it would be fun to talk about.

I won’t say a lot about the story other than it is an amazing piece of craftsmanship. Read it yourself. You can find a pdf of the story (with a few typos) here.

Or, if you have a subscription to the New Yorker, you can search for it at the New Yorker website.
