Classic Stories No. 3:
LEONORA CARRINGTON, ‘The Debutante’
ONCE A WEEK, and while submissions are open for the GBP Short Story Prize 2017/18, we'll be posting a short story for our friends and entrants to access freely.
Third is Leonora Carrington’s ‘The Debutante’, chosen by GBP Short Story Prize judge and Galley Beggar co-director Eloise Millar. Of this choice, Eloise writes: “I love the way Carrington combines a savage surrealism with a dry, clipped writing style. In ‘The Debutante’, the brutal and wonderfully strange is mediated through the voice of the everyday.”
‘The Debutante’ is freely available via Biblioklept and can be accessed here.
