Learn Old Man David wants something in return though Is Sam willing to pay the price This is a short story based in the same world as my novel Perfectible Animal. This short story is set in a world where no one can read is of course horrifying for the librarian in me I was totally engaged and felt I knew the main character though the story was very short a feat for a well written short story I was left wanting and I have a desire to go and find the other stories the author has written in this world Exactly what the author wants Great writing would recommend to short story lovers and dystopian readers
