“The Devil” by Nathan Long

One of the better online sources of fiction is failbetter.com, maybe because their motto comes from one of my favorite writers: Samuel Beckett.

I love the simple economy of “The Devil” by Nathan Long. And the greater story it tells. Here’s a snippet:

“The boy was a devil for only one night, but he did not like the thought of it, as though the devil might get under his skin. So he was relieved that his mother had missed the performance.”
