"BATTLE ROYAL" by Ralph Ellison

Hello, Everyone!

I'm a novice when it comes to short stories. I'm working to develop an appreciation for them, and I have chosen Option #1. Most of the stories I read will come from a Literature textbook kindly given to me recently by an English professor with whom my husband works. My first story for the year is "Battle Royal" by Ralph Ellison, and you can follow the link to read my impressions on my blog.

I'm looking forward to more discoveries such as this.
Thanks for the Challenge!

If you're trying out some short stories, try "Winter Dreams" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It's based in White Bear in the 20s. (He doesn't name the location, but refers to the lake as "Black Bear Lake").
