Blerrie Fockin’ Beautiful: Narrative Story of the Week

Blerrie Fockin’ Beautiful was a finalist in Narrative Magazine’s Winter Short Story Competition (2014). It has now appeared as Story of the Week (27/July).

Set in pre-Mandela Apartheid South Africa on a poor white farm in the Transvaal, it is entirely fictional as to character but one element of the story was true. You might like to suggest which it was.?

I am grateful to Narrative for choosing to publish so conspicuously! Would be interested in all comments. This is a return to an earlier writing life. Short stories are now queuing for similar respectful attention.
