Marie-Helene Bertino’s “Free Ham”
This post was meant for the first day of the month! And what a way to celebrate the first day of February! On this day the editors of The Forge Literary Magazine decided to republish one of Bertino’s stories from her collection and first book, Safe As Houses! Go read it! It’s the first story in her book and a great one to segue to the rest of her wildly inventive and hilarious stories!
P.S. This is my second time one of Bertino’s stories makes its way into the Short Story of the Day series (obviously she’s one of my favorites) so you should check that post as well if you missed it!
