— Damyanti Biswas, “Bear With Me” (Bluestem Magazine, September 2015), short story
READ: Damyanti’s Daily (w)rite post about the picture that prompted her story. And let me say, the best first sentence isn’t the only thing that grabbed me. This story is disturbing, raw, and thought-provoking, a wonderful read that will stay with me for a good while.
