Devotion - Tidbit #7 The Short Story

I used to love short stories because I didn't have the patience to read anything longer. Now that I'm older (a LOT older), I can read novels much more better. Perhaps I should give the newer short stories a try, too.

I have to admit that much of the history of the publishing house and the previous tidbit about Café de Flore make my head spin.
