The first short story of the new year was Ali Smith’s “The Ex-Wife” from her recent collection, “Public Library and Other Stories”. Reading this short story was a surreal experience, because I am a big fan of Katherine Mansfield’s works and wasn’t aware that she was a character in it.
I absolutely loved this story from the word go and will not give away too much of the plot. But it is the story where Mansfield’s works come alive more than anywhere else and she is literally the third wheel in a relationship. Brilliant writing there from a master story-teller. Do give this story and the collection a shot.
