387 Short Stories: Day 73: Story 73: Pale Horse, Pale Rider by Katherine Anne Porter

Pale Horse Pale Rider by Katherine Anne Porter Title: Pale Horse, Pale Rider
Author: Katherine Anne Porter
Taken from the Collection: Pale Horse, Pale Rider: The Short Stories

I first heard of Katherine Anne Porter through a dear friend from Delhi and I knew since then that I would love her works. It took me a lot of time to get around to reading her, but once I did, there was no turning back. Moreover, I think this project has connected me all over again to my favourite short-story writers. I am in love with the form once more and cannot get more of it.

“Pale Horse, Pale Rider” is a story of Miranda, a newspaper woman who falls in love with Adam, a soldier, during the epidemic of 1918. The story is about their lives and how it changes because of the epidemic.

Porter’s writing is about death, living and love and it will take your breath away. Do read it.
