Friday Book Club: J-Dub’s Review of The Best American Short Stories of 2021 Editor Jesmyn Ward – Part Three

Short intro – look back HERE for details of what I’m attempting. These posts are my experiment. Having the time of my life. Reading, writing, and all around musing. HERE you will find Part Two.

“You, reading this, you’re here, alive, because your parents synced and you showed up. That’s it. Even if they planned for a child, it was still a raffle draw. A hand went down in a bowl and picked you. The tree shook and a fruit fell down. If it pains you to read, then cry.”

Good Boy by Eloghosa Osunde

Only one quote today because of the length with so much to unpack. I was seriously in right place & time to read this quote. The randomness is not something unique to me. What matters is what comes after. What we do with our life is what counts.

As always, more to come.
