365 Stories: Day 15 to Day 18

So here are the four stories read from the 15th of January 2017 to the 18th of January 2017:

15th of January 2017:

A Fight with a Cannon by Victor Hugo: A grim tale of warfare, disaster, and bias. It is simply stunning and at the same time not complicated at all. I normally do not enjoy stories at sea, but I liked how this one is told.

16th of January 2017:

Bullet in a Brain by Tobias Wolff: There is satire. There is mock. There is distance. There is a lot of confusion as well. A story which is very different. Anders, the protagonist is very different. Nothing that I have read earlier.

17th of January 2017:

Died and Gone to Vegas by Tim Gautreaux

18th of January 2017:

I Stand Here Ironing by Tillie Olsen

These stories are just brilliant. Do give them a shot.
