I love literature. Recently I've become more engrossed by short stories, particularly the themes and ideas that an author can convey in a few pages as opposed to a few hundred. Until a couple of weeks ago my favorite piece was by Hemingway called "Hills Like White Elephants".
A couple weeks ago I found my new favorite piece:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
He was challenged to write a 6 word short story, and, in my opinion, this is the best short story ever written. I'm sure most of you understand what it means. So I'm curious, what are your favorite short stories? Or the ones that hit you right in that dark spot we sometimes call a heart?
